Now here's a story about A4e. It's appeared today on the Plymouth local newspaper site, but happened more than a month ago. A4e has the contract in Plymouth for what used to be called direct payments for social care and is now known as Independent Living Services. Most councils chose to keep this in-house, but A4e won a number of contracts to deliver the service. This story concerns an administrative blunder when a mass email to 157 people included, by mistake, an attachment listing the personal details of service users, i.e. people with disabilities. They've said sorry and done all the necessary things, but the council isn't best pleased, and neither are the service users and their relatives.
It's not the first time A4e has leaked data by mistake.
