Quick Guide to Data Protection and GDPR

Data Protection law changed on 25 May when the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was introduced. This affects all organisations that collect, use and store people’s information. In light of these changes, you may have to make changes to the way you use and store people’s information in your youth group.

We have created this Quick Guide to help you as small volunteer run member groups understand what you need to do to comply with the new legislation. This Quick Guide should be read alongside the information provide by Law at Work - Youth Scotland’s legal service partners.

For everyone involved in community based youth work. Find out more about what we do and apply for membership.
