Why All Charities Must Comply with the GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation ensuring data protection and privacy for individuals, regulating how personal data is processed and shared.

It is a legal obligation for charities operating in the UK to comply with the UK GDPR, and depending on the nature of their operations, some charities may also need to comply with the EU GDPR.

Charities often handle sensitive data, and compliance ensures this information is managed securely, preserving the trust of donors, beneficiaries, and the public. Non-compliance risks very high fines of up to £17.5M or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater. Significantly impacting a charity's finances and diverting funds from their core mission.

Furthermore, proper adherence to GDPR standards reinforces best practices in data management, positively impacting operational efficiency and stakeholder relationships.


Proper data handling is not just about legal compliance but upholding the integrity and reputation of your charity.

Advantages of GDPR Training for Your Charity

Risk Reduction - GDPR training minimises the likelihood of costly data breaches and ensures your staff and volunteers understand their legal data protection responsibilities.

Boosted Trust & Credibility - Displaying commitment to data protection and compliance with the GDPR's enhances your charity’s standing with donors, beneficiaries, and the general public.

Operational Robustness - Training allows your charity to fortify its operations against GDPR violations, ensuring data safety and uninterrupted service.

Legal Compliance - It is a legal requirement for your charity to comply with one or both of the UK and EU GDPR's, including ensuring your workers are sufficiently trained. Failure to comply can have a huge financial and reputational impact on your organisation. Our training is aligned with the training requirements of the ICO's Accountability Framework
