General Data Protection regulation (GDPR)

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has come into effect. The regulation gives individual more control over how data held about them is used in businesses and organisations, and that includes the Diocese and the parishes. We have responded by providing additional details about the information that we collect on individuals and how we use that information.

We have also explained the choices and the controls that individuals can exercise over their data held by us. Information has been sent to our parishes so that they can play their part in ensuring that we all comply with GDPR, and at the same time fulfil the mission of the Church.

Should you have any query or concern about how the Diocese manages personal data, please contact the GDPR Implementation Team at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
