Event Details

Dorset Community Action, East 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?

This Training & information session organised by DCA with Support from East Dorset District council and Laceys Solicitors aims to provide:-

  •       a summary of the current data protection principles which will continue to apply under the GDPR
  •      an explanation of the changes introduced by the GDPR 
  •      a list of practical steps to take in order to prepare for the GDPR.

The session will be delivered by Edwina Young from Laceys Solicitors and she will follow the information session with a question and answer session where you can raise an specific questions you may have. Edwina works within Laceys Solicitor’s Corporate and Commercial team and advises an entire spectrum of clients, from start up businesses through to large international corporations, on a wide range of commercial and corporate issues. Her areas of expertise include commercial contracts, intellectual property, charity law and regulatory law.

A resource pack will be available to take away with further support, information and links to help your organisation prepare.
