Dorset Community Action, West Dorset District Council and Laceys Solicitors are very pleased to invite you to attend a Data Protection Training & Information Session.

Data protection laws across Europe are undergoing their first substantial changes in 20 years.  The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is at the centre of the change and comes in to law on 25th May 2018.  GDPR aims to bring data protection practices and direct marketing (fundraising) practices up to date and ensure individuals personal data is treated with respect.  But what does that mean for a voluntary, community or charitable organisation?
