GDPR Toolkit!

FVA has worked with Square Peg HR to develop a GDPR Toolkit. It will help you to produce a range of policies, templates and more to help you comply with GDPR. It will save most organisations several days or thousands of pounds! The toolkit is 220 which includes up to 1 hour of e-mail support for Fife-based organisations. Click here to find out more

Specific Advice and Support

Specific advice will be tricky due to the complexity and uniqueness of data processing of each organisation. Legal advice from a specialist solicitor is the safest bet. Expect to pay in the region of 250-350 per hour for advice.

Guidance is available on the website links elsewhere on this page. Guidance and a degree of advice is available from Fife Voluntary Action. Square Peg HR (who co-delivered the GDPR training with FVA) can provide templates and specific advice in relation to employee, volunteer and job applicant processing. You can contact Frances McAulay of Square Peg HR by e-mail.

HR software
