'Data Protection, GDPR and Volunteers' training
Wednesday 13 December 2017, 1pm - 4pm
 
In May 2018, new regulations come into force intended to give individuals greater control over how organisations use their data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will affect how charities work with data and look after this valuable information.
 
The session will cover the key changes that you need to consider in terms of volunteers' personal data (e.g. getting consent, storing & deleting personal information, subject access requests).
 
We will analyse policies and processes that organisations should put in place to manage volunteers who might have access to service-users personal data, e.g. the volunteers might input personal data into a database, or have access to personal data on vulnerable clients/young people (under-18s).
 
This practical training will be delivered by Mark Burnett, a fully trained Data Protection Officer and Head of Charity Partnerships at ClearComm, an organisation delivering training, audit and monitoring services on GDPR.
 
Cost. Our training programme is kindly subsidised by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets (LBTH) via a Mainstream Grant. This enables us to offer discounts to certain organisations. Cost starts at just £30. We can offer 1 free place. Find out more.
