The DPO Centre announces 2023 beneficiaries of its Charity and Community Fund

THE DPO Centre, the UK’s leading data protection experts have announced the next four charities and not-for-profit (NFP) organisations to be awarded privacy and data protection services in 2023.  

These four charities and NFPs will have access to The DPO Centre’s team of data protection professionals, who provide straightforward, practical advice, backed by the experience gained from working with hundreds of charitable and commercial organisations around the globe. 

Red Balloon Educational Trust

Red Balloon Educational Trust provides a full-time educational and therapeutic recovery programme for young people aged 11-21, who have been severely bullied, faced trauma or struggle with mental ill-health, and find themselves unable to attend mainstream school.    

Restorative Justice for all

Restorative Justice for All (RJ4All) is a charitable, user-led international institute with a mission to address poverty and advance both the narrative and real-life experience of equality, community cohesion and human rights. 

MQ Mental Health Research

MQ Mental Health Research is a leading UK mental health research charity. Mental illness affects up to one in four of us, yet funding for this health crisis falls woefully short, with only £9 spent on research per person affected by mental illness.    

Cardinal Hume Centre

A charity based in Westminster aiming to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness with a particular focus on helping young people, children, and their families. Many of whom are placed into unsuitable and overcrowded temporary accommodations in London.

Rob Masson, CEO, of The DPO Centre said:

“I am delighted that The DPO Centre is able to offer our services to ease the burden around data protection and privacy regulation for these four organisations, giving them access to high-quality support and all-important peace of mind.

“A common theme we have seen is that not-for-profit organisations are unable to access the expertise they require, particularly those dealing with sensitive special category data.  At The DPO Centre, we want to have a positive impact, so our team chose causes that align with our core values and ethos.  We look forward to working with these valuable organisations over the coming months.

The successful applicants will receive support across the following areas:  

Compliance reviews and gap analysis reports 

Policy drafting and reviews  

Conducting Data Protection Impact Assessments (DPIAs)  

Creating and reviewing data sharing and data processing agreements  

The DPO Centre Charity and Community Fund is a £100,000 fund, providing charities and not-for-profits (NFPs) with access to the DPO Centre’s industry-leading data protection consultancy services at a rate reduced by 80 per cent. Eligible organisations apply for up to £10,000 of funding each towards consultancy services. 

The DPO Centre is the UK’s leading independent data protection officer resource centre, offering expert advice and ensuring organisations have access to the level of knowledge and expertise they require to comply with the highest standards of privacy and data protection.
