Event description

Description

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) underpins the revised Data Protection Act 2018. It has had significant implications for the ways in which independent and voluntary sector fostering providers (IFPs) manage data and personal, sensitive information. IFPs have been working over the last year to respond to this huge change and this is a good time to take stock of what has been achieved so far and share learning.

Not all of the implications are yet fully understood by IFPs or agreed with their local authority partners. For instance, is there a stage of sharing data in which IFPs and local authorities become joint data controllers? The session will also identify these areas of uncertainty and how IFPs might approach them over the coming months by working together.

This workshop is a sharing session for staff from NAFP member agencies only (maximum of two places per agency) and free of charge. If delegate places are cancelled at less than one week’s notice, NAFP reserve the right to make a £25 admin charge per place.

The session will be faciliated by trainers from Guardian Saints who provide bespoke DPO services to a number of fostering agencies, helping them to overcome the challenges, and who are also accredited assessors for GDPR readiness via the IASME scheme.
