Why choose us to help you build trust and achieve your purpose?
Simply put, we know social housing: Our housing association templates, tools and training are especially designed for social housing providers, based on years of experience of working in and with the sector.
Our director, Clare Paterson, has over 20 years of experience in quality assurance and risk management, including around ten years specialising in data protection and 12 years in a large housing association. And every member of the CPDP team has a background in social housing too.
Clare launched CP Data Protection to offer accessible, real-world advice and training that supports rather than scares you, and is especially passionate about helping HAs fulfil their social purpose.
What do people say?
“Clare is friendly, professional and flexible. She applies her expert knowledge to provide practical examples that you can apply to your working day. Nothing is too much or too big of a question, I can’t think of a time I asked Clare a question that she didn’t know the answer to. I always come away from a conversation with Clare with a clear answer and never left confused. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Clare for the past 3 years and hope there are many more to come.
I first met Clare when she provided training to my colleagues and I at a previous organisation, I came away thinking what an interesting subject Data Protection is. I think that shows how amazing her training style truly is – not many people come out of a Data Protection Training session and decide that’s the career path they want to take! I love Clare’s approach to training, it’s not death by PowerPoint; she takes the time to talk things through and always applies examples specific to the audience’s job role.”
“Clare’s warm and friendly approach encourages other colleagues and teams to interact to a greater extent on the topics of Information Governance, which in return improves the overall service quality and compliance levels for the organisation. I am confident Clare’s skills and abilities would be of huge benefit to any organisation looking to improve their Information Governance posture and maturity levels.”
“I worked with Clare whilst she put into place a comprehensive GDPR training and policy refresh for my organisation. Clare is organised, reliable and knowledgeable. Her presentations and policy work are excellent quality and she brings a warm and professional manner to all her work. Clare is generous with her time and knowledge and is a pleasure to work with – I highly recommend her.”
