Some of you may wonder questions about how data protection law affects the sharing - and storage - of information related to Safeguarding.

The short answer is that in the UK, the Data Protection Act 2018 contains an amendment specifically to permit the careful and limited sharing of information in order to address or prevent harm and crime - only between the few who need to know in order to address the matter effectively and swiftly.

Here is a document the Safeguarding team put out in 2018 to complement the ‘Changes to Data Protection’ document attached to the post above. It covers how to store confidential information/case notes securely, as required of Safeguarding officers in Britain.

And for those of you who live outside the UK… things may be very different indeed. In Sweden, where I live, the storage of confidential sensitive personal information or case notes by a charity/förening is completely forbidden! So check the law in your country.

Love,
Munisha

Applying to become a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation)

Tue, 21 May, 2019 - 17:22

A Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) is the form that the Charity Commission now suggest charities use - it has the benefit of limiting the liability of the trustees.

It is not that hard to do, honestly! The attached documents provide some helpful samples and advice but let us know if you think there is an important omission (info [at] triratnadevelopment.org) - the Development Team are not experts in charity law but will do what they can to help!...
