Data protection for volunteers

Parkinson's UK commits to ensuring the highest level of data protection.

We've developed these resources and tools to help you understand how to work with data. This ensures that together we're offering confidential and robust support for people affected by Parkinson's.

As a volunteer it's vital to know the role you play in keeping people's personal data safe, and that Parkinson's UK is here to support you every step of the way. This guide explains the basics, signposts you to where you can find further guidance, and lets you know the actions you need to take.

To support you to stay safe, and in line with Data Protection, we also have a guide to password protect your documents.

We've developed a range of advanced data protection resources for volunteers who regularly handle personal data. And, if you're staying connected in new ways with other volunteers, our advanced training has advice you may find useful.
