Personal Data

How Might Your Process Affect My Privacy If I Want to Get Involved?

To manage European funding programmes properly, we need to process personal data of people who may be interested in, apply for, and/or take part in these programmes. Staff in Léargas, the relevant government departments, the European Commission and other agencies and evaluators with whom Léargas works have access to the information and use it only for the purposes for which it was supplied.

Complaints and Appeals

How Do You Process Complaints?

We do our utmost to ensure satisfaction with the service you receive from Léargas and/or organisations that receive Erasmus+ and European Solidarity Corps funding. However, we recognise that issues may arise and have a process for handling complaints.

Protected Disclosures

What are Protected Disclosures?

A Protected Disclosure is the term used when an individual raises a concern about a relevant wrongdoing to comply with any legal obligation which came to their attention in connection with their employment. With the Protected Disclosure Policy & Procedure Léargas aims is to ensure that there is a clear and straightforward channel to raise issues of concern. The Protected Disclosures (Amendment) Act 2022 extends the provisions for those making disclosures from workers to also include contractors, volunteers, unpaid trainees, board members, shareholders, members of administrative, management or supervisory bodies and job applicants (where information on a relevant wrongdoing is acquired during the recruitment process or during pre-contractual negotiations).​​
