The General Data Protection Regulations came into force in May 2018.  With these new regulsations, additional responsibilities were placed on organisations as regards how they use people's personal data. 


This training gives an insight into the new the new regulations and the changes that need to be made in order to comply with the new duties under GDPR. 

  • This training is tailored to specific groups in order to reflect the specific work that they do.

  • Participants are given templates to help implement what is learnt during the session. 

  • There is an opportunity to ask questions and for open discussion with the group. 

What do the General Data Protection Regulations mean for the organisation?


In the voluntary sector, a lot depends on the work done by voluntary groups. This means that a lot of responsibility falls on these groups and that they must be aware of various legal and practical duties that they have in order to make headway with the work of the organisation. 

In this training, the following elements are included, depending on the status of the organisation at that time: 

  • Discussion on the various roles that are in any committee and the responsibilities which come with that.

  • Guidance on administrative matters related to setting up a committee, e.g. agreeing a constitution, registering with the Charity Commission if necessary, putting necessary policies in place. 

  • Deciding on future work priorities and planning on how to achieve these aims.
