It was great to receive the following message from one of our clients.
“My PA was able to speak up for me, when I got tongue tied, or got confused about how to say what I needed to, or when I felt too upset to talk. It was also really helpful to have someone friendly with a good sense of humour ( & who didn’t need anything explaining to..), to rest & calm me”
Client – June 2018
Data protection is changing within the EU and we have been working hard behind the scenes to make sure we abide by the new laws coming in to place on 25th May 2018.
So what does it mean?
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy
Basically GDPR will change the way in which we keep and use information about anyone who uses or interacts with us as a company. This will increase the safety of your information and will see companies and organisations doing more to allow that to happen.
What will you be changing?
As a company we will be issuing new documentation to all social workers, clients and anyone who interacts with us as a company to make sure we do all that we can to keep to the revised laws.
I haven’t heard anything from Breaking The Cycle?
If you haven’t heard from us by the end of June then it is probably because we do not hold enough information about you to make any changes but by all means contact us if you have any worries.
The company has now appointed an administrator who has been emailing all of the PAs to remind us about sign in sheets etc. Now this may not seem like a positive but it has helped me as I have a shocking memory sometimes.
It does fill me with positivity as making the jump to the company meant making a jump to becoming self employed, something that I have never done before and something that I was worried wouldn’t work leaving me and my family in a difficult position. However there seems to be some positive changes coming in to place which makes me believe that the company is serious about building relationships with local authorities and their clients to make sure they stay someone that people will want to employ.
Here is to positivity, something that is not always easy to come by.
