Data Protection for Voluntary Organisations

Data Protection for Voluntary Organisations

Data Protection can be a complex and bewildering subject, but it is one that can have an enormous impact on both individuals and organisations.

This well-received and practical guide will help you get to grips quickly with the main requirements of the Data Protection Act and ensure that your organisation is compliant.

This fourth edition draws on Paul Ticher's extensive experience of working with voluntary organisations on the practicalities of Data Protection and has been completely rewritten to take account of GDPR.  It also explains the implications of the UK having left the European Union.

What they say about Data Protection in Voluntary Organisations:

"Protecting personal data of vulnerable and disadvantaged people and ensuring their rights is the undeniable responsibility of every non-profit organisation that supports them. If you feel out of your depth and worried that your organisation doesn’t meet the mark, this book is the perfect place to start.

Written in clear language and set in a meaningful context, this is the best translation of the hundreds of pages of data protection legislation as it applies to charitable organisations. A prodigious achievement on one of the most important and challenging legal responsibilities for our sector." Sian Basker, Co-Chief Executive, Data Orchard


“There are not many people within the charity sector who are specialists in data protection.  Paul uses simple, straightforward language to cover all aspects of this complex but vitally important subject.  Brilliantly practical!"  Peter Dean, Director of Finance, Riding for the Disabled Association


“A detailed and methodical approach to data protection.  This comprehensive guide is an accessible source of information filled with valid and relevant examples.  I found it a particualrly great help in getting to grips with specific areas such as consent and contracts.”  Kirsty Cunningham, Head of Fundraising, St. Martin-in-the-fields Charity


"I have worked with Paul for many years now and I have always appreciated his ability to share his enthusiasm for this complex subject and how it applies to our sector. Written in a very understandable and user-friendly way, this book is truly accessible." Jeni Woods, Quality Manager, Grace Eyre Foundation
