Freedom of Information requests

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 provides a right of access to all recorded information held by public authorities. The University is a public authority as defined by the Act.

The University strives to be as open as possible and is willing to share information about its activities.

The main way in which we provide information is via the University’s website. You can browse the different categories of information or use the search facility to locate a particular item.

Written requests for information should be sent to:

Freedom of Information Officer
Liverpool Hope University
Hope Park
Liverpool
L16 9JD

E: foi@hope.ac.uk 

Appeals and complaints

Appeals against a Refusal Notice issued in response to a request for information must be made in writing to:

Mr Derrick Dykins
Head of Committee Secretariat
Liverpool Hope University
Hope Park
Liverpool
L16 9JD

E: dykinsd@hope.ac.uk

Appeals will be acknowledged within five working days. A full response to the appeal will normally be sent directly to the enquirer within a further ten working days. In the case of a more complex review, in particular when a public interest test is involved, the timescale may be longer but a response will be issued within thirty days.

Complaints in respect of the University’s Publications Scheme should also be addressed to the Head of Committee Secretariat.

If we are unable to resolve your complaint, or if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your appeal, you can appeal further to the Information Commissioner, the independent body which oversees the Freedom of Information Act, at the address below:
