GDPR Animation Series

1 Mar 2019     Last updated: 29 May 2019

We'll be launching a new animation over the first five months of 2019 on a different data protection topic. Stay tuned to this blog and NICVA Enews for more!

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced in May 2018. With changes in data protection law came the need to inform trustees and skill staff about how to develop appropriate systems and processes.

Listening to feedback from groups in the sector, we realised that there was a need for this information to be presented in a very concise way for voluntary and community groups. With funding from Building Change Trust (via Community Foundation for Northern Ireland), we have developed a series of five animations that focus on some of the key issues.

The GDPR Fairy explains each concept in a concise fun way and signposts to further information available as part of NICVA's Data Protection Toolkit.

We hope you find the animations an easy introduction to data protection and how to apply it to your organisation.
