We noticed that the Mutual Aid groups that sprung up in response to the crisis had variable and often no Safeguarding or GDPR practices. This was leaving many vulnerable people at risk of abuse when they were coming to ask for help.
We put together a training Zoom session to teach the basics of Safeguarding and GDPR. The resources that went along with this sessions are available here.
We became a national leader on Safeguarding and GDPR for Mutual Aid and informed the practices of many groups up and down the country.
