GDPR Guidance

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force from 25 May 2018. If we’re not all aligned with GDPR we risk serious penalties and damage to Scouting’s reputation. Here’s what we’ve done to help:

We’ve created an e-learning module to lead you and your Scout Group, District, or County/Area/Region through alignment with GDPR.

We’ve updated the GDPR toolkit following your feedback, to help you identify your local data risks.

We’ve updated our Data Protection Policy to align with GDPR, which defines how UK headquarters stores, shares, secures and retains your personal data.

You can find more info on GDPR here. If you need any additional information, please visit the ICO website.
