New Briefing - Information Governance and Smaller Charities

National Association for Voluntary and Community Action (NAVCA) have published this new briefing in response to an issue that is creating problems for smaller charities. Organisations contracted by the NHS are being told that they need to provide assurances that they are practicing good information governance and specifically that they must use the Information Governance Toolkit to evidence this.

For local groups and charities this is an unexpected and disproportionate burden for smaller charities delivering contracts of low value. It is worth noting that the toolkit applies to all aspects of a charity not just their NHS funded activities.
