The DPO Centre Charity and Community Fund

Throughout our years of working with charities and NFPs, we fully appreciate that every penny counts and all available resources need to be focussed on the cause. However, charities and NFPs need access to expert advice and guidance to ensure they run efficiently and remain compliant with the law. The DPO Centre is therefore proud to be able to offer our Charity and Community Fund.

The fund’s purpose is to provide access to our data protection consultancy services, but at an 80% funded rate, therefore enabling worthy causes to access our expertise, but with the least effect on their ability to fund their core purpose.

Our next round of funding ends on:

18th November 2022

We would expect your organisation to:

Upon application you will receive a confirmation email and one of our dedicated staff will contact you for further information to complete your application.
