Charities collect a wide variety of data about supporters, service users, beneficiaries, staff, and volunteers. Understanding what data your charity can voluntarily share, what you're required by law to share, and what you shouldn't share, can be tricky, but getting it wrong could have serious financial and reputational implications.

Our expert solicitors, Carla Whalen and Rebecca Cumming, will present three interactive case studies focusing on data sharing requests that charities commonly encounter:

  • a Subject Access Request from a former employee - what needs to be disclosed and what is exempt?
  • a public sector funder asking for information to enable them to comply with a Freedom of Information request – how much should you share?
  • a third-party agency asking for information about a service user – balancing the need to cooperate with an individual's right to privacy


Tuesday 10 March 2020 - 7 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4BS


Following the escalation of COVID-19 Coronavirus in the UK, this event has regrettably had to be postponed. We will keep a close eye on developments and will update this page once a new date has been confirmed for this seminar.
