Data protection legislation covers how you keep personal data about employees, volunteers, service users, members, supporters and donors. Whilst there are some changes coming with the new legislation, the basic principles remain the same. It’s a good time to look at your current policy and procedures to make sure they are fit for purpose.
NCVO KnowHowNonProfit website has some useful links and well-written guidance for charities on how to prepare for GDPR.
Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is the regulator for data protection and privacy law. The ICO website includes a self-assessment toolkit which is suitable for small and medium sized organisations.
If you’ve read the Know How Non Profit guidance and used the toolkits, and you still have questions, please contact us.
