Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.helenatkinrda.org.uk.

The Helen Atkin Group, Riding for the Disabled is committed to protecting the privacy of our service users, supporters, volunteers, and other people who are in contact with the organisation. When you request information from us or volunteer for any of our services, we may obtain information about you; this privacy notice sets out why and how we store and use this information.

What information do we collect about you?

We will collect data about our volunteers and supporters to help us deliver an effective service and to provide you with the information or service you require from us.

How will we use the information about you?

We will use the information about you to administer the activities or programmes that support our group, riders and drivers. We may pass the information about you to third parties, but this will only be when this is necessary for the effective delivery of our operation. We work closely with any third party and will ensure that your data is also protected by them. We will not disclose any information about you to any company that is not immediately associated with our activities, unless required to do so by law. We store your information securely on our computer system, we restrict access to those who have a need to know, and we train our volunteers in handling the information securely.


We would like to send you newsletters and other information about our work and how you can support it. We may even pass out marketing material on behalf of the Riding for the Disabled Association (https://www.rda.org.uk). If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes.

Access to your information and correction

You have the right to request a copy of the information that we hold about you.

We want to make sure that your personal information is accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove information you think is inaccurate.

Retention of data

We have a retention policy and use this to define how long we hold information after you are no longer involved with the Helen Atkin Group, Riding for the Disabled. In some cases we will securely retain your data for 3 years (or 3 years after a child reaches the age of 18) if we are required to for insurance purposes.
