Ethical and Responsible Data Use - Considerations for Small Charities

A couple of years ago we will all have reviewed our data collection and data usage in terms of compliance with the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

But as small charities and community groups, often working with a range of vulnerable client groups and collecting personal sensitive data, there may be more to think about than just the legalities.


What you will learn:

  • GDPR principles and legal basis for data processing (a brief review)
  • Research ethics appropriate for small charities
  • Other responsible data use considerations
  • Informed consent
  • Data sharing


The session will be interactive. We ask participants to be prepared to discuss issues you are facing within their own organisations.

We share practical templates to use when planning future projects and related data usage.


Who attends this session:

This course is for anyone who works for a small charity or community group that wants to check they are following best practice when working with their data.

Attendees are encouraged to attend previous or follow up skills based training in the Datawise London learner pathway or access one-to-one support.
