General Data Protection Regulation

Positive Futures and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The GDPR came into effect on May 25 2018 and this affects any organisation which holds personal data. As we store and use a variety of personal information from the people we support, our staff and volunteers as well as others, we take great care to ensure that personal data is handled securely and in line with the latest regulations. This is detailed in our Data Protection Policy, which is available for download here.

The Information Commissioner’s Office (www.ico.org.uk) has published guidance on the GDPR which we follow to facilitate Positive Futures’ compliance:
