A beginner’s guide to data, databases and data protection

Your charity is nothing without people. When people decide to give you their data they trust you to do the right thing with it – to record it correctly, store it securely, use it to contact them appropriately, and apply the necessary data protection rules and regulations to it.

This workshop will help you understand best practice in data management, data protection regulation and whether your organisation needs to invest in a database. 

This session will cover:

  • What personal data is – including data, photos, video, CCTV.
  • What your data obligations are in terms of current data protection rules, and new GDPR changes.
  • Why your organisation needs a supporter database.
  • How to define what system is right for your organisation.
  • How to manage data coming in and out of your organisation.
  • Q&A session and further useful resources.


This course is suitable for sole fundraisers, marketing managers, database managers and data protection officers.
