Successful charities are selected after an independent voting A series of actions or steps taken in order to achieve a particular end..
Congratulations to this round’s winners!
These four organisations will have access to The DPO Centre’s team of experienced data protection professionals and receive practical advice and support, including compliance reviews, policy drafting, data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) and the creation and review of data sharing and data processing agreements.
Lenitha Bishop, COO of The DPO Centre said, ‘We have been overwhelmed by the popularity of the Charity Fund and are thrilled to announce the latest beneficiary line-up, having already delivered the equivalent of fifty-nine days of support to previous winners.
Offering our expertise and insight to these deserving organisations not only allows them to focus on their cause, but also provides them with essential data protection support they might otherwise not have access to.’
Applications for the next round of funding will be open in January 2024, with eligibility criteria to include:
Beneficiaries receive up to £10,000 towards consultancy services, but only billed for 20% of the normal fee. Unsuccessful, organisations may re-apply for another round, but only one application per 12-month period will be considered.
