Information sharing

The NEET service relies on information sharing between the Ministry of Social Development and Youth Service providers.

The Ministry of Social Development has a formal agreement with the Ministry of Education to share information about school leavers and potential school leavers.

There are additional provisions for authorised third parties to share information with Youth Service providers and the Ministry of Social Development.

A young person may complain to the Privacy Commissioner if personal information relating to them is disclosed in breach of the Privacy Act or authorisations provided for in the Social Security Act.
