Blackpool Unlimited is the ‘go to’ platform for business support

At the heart of business in Blackpool (brought to you by Blackpool Council).

Call in to see us at the #centre4enterprise It was established by a partnership between the Blackpool Business Leadership Group, (established in 2006 by a small group of business leaders to encourage improved communication between the private and public sectors, and support the wider economic development of the town) and Blackpool Council in order to help businesses realise their potential.

Why? Because we passionately believe that nurturing and energising local businesses will help build a bigger and better Blackpool.

Within this website you will find a wealth of information to help you and your business – whether you are a new business, an established business – or someone who is just thinking about going into business. The advice and information on our website is wide ranging – but because it’s updated every day you should find it up-to-date and relevant. However, we are aware that not everyone wants to search a website for information; sometimes people in business prefer to talk to someone either on the phone or face-to-face. So if you want to speak to one of our advisors on the telephone, simply call 01253 477 147 and we will point you in the right direction. There’s no charge for any of these services – our aim is quite simply to try to help businesses in Blackpool to prosper.

Long Business Description:

Welcome To DT Information Governance

Hello, I am Deborah from DT Information Governance.  My company is a North-West (Blackpool) based consultancy and training company for information governance – think data protection and you are part way there. My vision is to be a trusted service that makes a difference to businesses and organisations. 

With significant experience in the public and private sector, including schools and charities, I provide qualified (I do have a Master of Laws in this subject, but I don’t talk ‘legal’ unless I need to) and quality advice, support, training on a wide range of information legislation. In particular the Data Protection Act, the ‘infamous’ GDPR, Freedom of Information Act, Environmental Information Regulations, as well as CCTV, Information Sharing and so much more. I do this by being knowledgeable and up-to-date, practical and plain speaking. 

I can support your business, saving you time and money by ensuring you are compliant with the legislation and have the necessary policies and procedures in place. This allows you and your staff to concentrate on looking after your business and customers.

For all of my training course, I use real-life examples that are tailored to your needs. Interactive ways of learning mean you won’t be bored!. I can create training specifically for your business or you can join a course run locally.

So…

  • – Are you unsure about whether you have everything in place for GDPR compliance?  Speak to me about ‘health check’​ options (an audit in disguise).
  • – Do you need policies and procedures? 
  • – Do you know if you have to notify and pay a fee to the UK regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)?
  • – Do you need help liaising with the ICO? 
  • – Do you need training in data protection (or FOI, EIR etc.), handling requests, DPIA completion?
  • – Would you like a Data Protection Officer to support you and your staff?
  • – Not sure if your procedures are working. What about a ‘mystery shop’​ to test these with a report of findings?
  • – Not sure if your CCTV or Body Worn Video (BWV) is compliant with data protection or the Surveillance Camera Commissioner’s Codes, or need help with your self-assessment?
  • – For those subject to the FOI Act and EIR, do you have a backlog and need help?
  • – Need support with FOI or EIR, or even support with a particularly complex request?

It’s ok to say that “I don’t know what you’re talking about” as I am happy to have a chat and explain more. 

Contact me to have a chat about the options available and how I can help. I promise to be honest with you from our first conversation and throughout.

Thank you.
