GDPR One Year On: Implications for safeguarding practice

Course Title:
GDPR One Year On: Implications for safeguarding practice
Course Code:

Sharing information is an intrinsic part of any frontline practitioners’ job when working with children and young people. The decisions about how much information to share, with whom and when, can have a profound impact on individuals’ lives. Information sharing helps to ensure that an individual receives the right services at the right time and prevents a need from becoming more acute and difficult to meet.

The General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into effect on 25 May 2018.  The GDPR aims primarily to give control to people over their personal data and how it is stored by organisations and poses significant challenges for public sector organisations.  In July 2018 the government issued ‘Advice for practitioners providing safeguarding services to children, young people, parents and carers’. This is  non-statutory guidance which  has been produced to support practitioners in the decisions they take to share information, which reduces the risk of harm to children and young people and promotes their well-being.
