GDPR – Guide for Charities

The Charity Finance Group, in partnership with Buzzacott, Crowe Clarke Whitehill and Kingston Smith, has launched the General Data Protection Regulation: A guide for charities. The guide has something for every charity and is split into five parts:

  • Governance
  • Fundraising data
  • Financial data
  • Beneficiary data
  • Employee data

The guide is aimed at helping to build knowledge and understanding of what the GDPR is what responsibilities organisations have to be GDPR compliant and know what to do in light of a data breach. This guide is for anyone with responsibility for data management within their charity, from trustees, to finance directors, to volunteers.
