Charities make a tremendous and undervalued contribution to our local communities and the wider world. However in recent years, the sector has come in for criticism over how they fundraise and communicate with supporters – even making the front-page of national newspapers.
Not only does the UK public now expect more of charities, from May 2018 the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will come into effect. These regulations will change how charities use personal data and make a big impact on how they communicate with their supporters.
Data protection and best practices are now more important than ever for charities – not least because you can be fined for a GDPR breach. However with proper planning and knowledge, your charity can easily meet the new regulations and ensure full compliance ahead of implementation.
Charity Now provides you with key information and advice about how to implement these new regulations into your charity.
