Data protection health check for Guernsey Mind

Guernsey Mind

Guernsey Mind is an independent mental health charity, promoting positive mental health for the community by providing free mental health services as well as raising overall awareness.

In the day-to-day running of the charity, Guernsey Mind processes and holds a wide range of personal data. The effective protection, security, and controls over of this data is fundamental to ongoing success of the charity and the vital services it provides.

CBO Data Protection Health Check

As part of our ongoing commitment to supporting the local charity sector, CBO completed a ‘Data Protection Health Check’ for Guernsey Mind. The work was done during time allocated to all CBO staff members each year to put towards supporting a charity or community programme of their choice. This health check provided an independent and detailed review of the charity’s existing data protection approach and documentation against the local data protection legislation.

This work aimed to confirm Guernsey Mind’s data protection compliance, identify any gaps, and provide recommendations on how these gaps can be closed. In addition, CBO provided support and advice on data protection activities and controls.

Outcome

The CBO health check provided a detailed report confirming Guernsey Mind’s data protection compliance, and identified tangible improvements that can be made to embed and improve data protection in day-to-day activities.

The health check also provided input to a central UK Mind governance review for the local charity, giving Guernsey Mind confidence in its data governance responses.

Client Feedback

“We are very grateful to Ed, Philip and the team at CBO for their help and support with our Data Protection Health Check.  Ensuring that our data is used and stored appropriately is hugely important to us.  This is not our area of expertise, so having professionals in this field to review all our policies and processes has been very helpful.  The report produced was simple to understand and Ed was also very helpful in providing guidance as to where we could make improvements. Thanks for your support!”  Jo Cottell, Chief Executive, Guernsey Mind.
