Data Protection for Voluntary Organisations

Data Protection for Voluntary Organisations


NB: This edition is based on the 1998 Act which has now been superseded by GDPR and the 2018 Act

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 third edition draws on Paul Ticher's extensive experience of working with voluntary organisations on the practicalities of Data Protection.  As well as incorporating changes to data protection law since the second edition there is a short chapter on Freedom of Information and how it relates to voluntary organisations.

What they say about Data Protection in Voluntary Organisations:

“Detailed and comprehensive, yet also accessible.  The author's common-sense approach will prove a great help to voluntary organisations, especially smaller organisations that do not have access to in-house legal advice.” Richard Thomas, Information Commissioner, 2002-2009

“Excellent.  Achieves the rare feat of making people realise that data protection isn't as scary as they thought.  A very readable and practical guide.”  Helen Morris, Programme Leader, School of Law, Northumbria University

“With such a clearly written guide, there can be no excuses for not understanding and implementing the Act.” Mark Gannon, National Centre for Volunteering

“Paul Ticher writes in a clear, jargon-free style and makes effective use of case studies to illustrate key points.” Review in Trust & Foundation News

“This book will certainly be an essential tool.” Review by National Association for Councils of Voluntary Service (now NAVCA)
