Dudley CVS is pleased to welcome trainer Paul Ticher for this engaging workshop designed to help not-for-profits in Dudley borough (and across the wider Region) embed GDPR in their organisation.
Here’s what you can expect
Good Data Protection compliance is not just a legal obligation; it also demonstrates that an organisation takes a responsible attitude to the information it holds about the people it works for, the people it works with and the people who support the work.
Most voluntary organisations are well aware that our old Data Protection Act was replaced on 25th May 2018 by the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
GDPR is not a radical departure, but it does introduce some important changes in the rules about how data maybe legally handled and in the responsibilities of organisations.
At the same time, recent changes in the way fundraising and direct marketing are regulated mean that all charities have to review their current practice.
This course will:
- Ensure that all participants are confident about the basics of Data Protection, both now and in the future.
- Put Data Protection in context –looking briefly at its relationship to confidentiality, for example.
- Explain the key changes that GDPR introduces and how the new requirements might be met.
- Explore issues that will particularly affect small- and medium-sized charities.
- Explore the options available to charities in their fundraising and direct marketing activities.
- Enable participants to draw up an action plan.
The workshop is being held on 26th September at the DY1 Community Venue in Dudley.
