Rainbow Project burglary is gut wrenching but personal data not compromised

Wednesday 18 July 2018

The Green Party’s Mal O’Hara has assured people that personal data was not compromised after laptops were stolen during a break in at the offices of the Rainbow Project, in Belfast last night.

The Rainbow Project offers a range of help and support services to LGBTQ people and their families as well as lobbying and advocating for equality.

Mal O’Hara, who worked for Rainbow for almost eight years, commented: “The Rainbow Project has reassured service users that private data cannot be accessed via the stolen lap tops and I would reiterate that.

“This is a gut wrenching burglary, particularly as we’re on the cusp of Pride week. I’d urge anyone with any information on the theft to contact the PSNI on the non-emergency number 101.

“I hope that people get behind a fundraiser aimed at helping the Rainbow Project in the aftermath of this break in.

“If you can afford a few pounds to support and maintain Rainbow’s crucial work with the LGBTQ community, you can donate using the link below”.
