"BREAKING NEWS: SAFEGUARDING AMENDMENT TO DATA PROTECTION BILL"

"The adoption of certain new amendments by the House of Commons this week is a hugely promising development for child protection and adult safeguarding professionals."

"The new amendment 85, adopted by the House of Commons Public Bill Committee on Tuesday 13 March, goes further in empowering organisations – in the course of their own activities and judgment – to process personal data for safeguarding purposes lawfully, without consent where appropriate. This will be welcome news for schools, charities and volunteer organisations, religious organisations and sports clubs and governing bodies alike."
