Clear & Practical Data Protection

For Social Housing providers, and other purpose-driven sectors and organisations, helping you build trust and fulfil your social purpose, by understanding and embedding great data-management practices.

CP Data Protection is a UK-based (in the Midlands) consultancy, specialists in clear & practical data protection advice, consultancy & training that reassures and supports rather than scares.

What makes CP Data Protection different?

It can be a lonely position being in any role responsible for compliance, especially in the often-misunderstood area of data protection. With so much to learn and apply to your organisation, it can feel overwhelming, isolating, or frustrating – often all three within just a few minutes! 

It doesn’t have to be that way, though; welcome to CP Data Protection®, the clear and practical data protection consultancy. Our purpose is to help you manage your data in a way that helps you achieve your purpose while building trust with your customers, employees, and stakeholders, and without adding more stress! 

When you work with us, you will have knowledge transferred, no gatekeeping here! That means you can handle personal data safely and lawfully, with as much or little support as you need from us. 

So if you’re ready to calm the overwhelm, and banish the imposter syndrome, find out how we can support you with our range of offers and find out what will work best for you and your organisation. 

Book now available!

With clear advice and a pragmatic approach, this is the book that our director Clare wanted and needed when working in a large housing association on data protection. As well as explaining the legal requirements, it highlights the many benefits of handling personal data in a compliant manner, including improved efficiency and increased customer trust, which both help landlords fulfil their social purpose more effectively. Read a free chapter here.

This book shows how data protection can go from being seen as red tape or a blocker, to becoming the foundation on which to achieve the housing sector’s goals. It doesn’t just lay out the law; it contains actionable advice and ideas for identifying risks and controls, and embedding data protection into the day-to-day work of social housing providers.

What people say about CP Data Protection
