Event Details

overherd charity event

The focus for June's Overherd will be around the new EU regulations for 'opt in'.

The EU's new data protection regulations that come into force in May 2018 say charities, along with other organisations, must have the "express consent" of members of the public before contacting them. 

Together we will hear from charities that are currently implementing their opt in strategy and we will be joined by industry specialists who will shedding light on the conditions for processing subject data.


Join us in a relaxed peer-to-peer learning enviornment as we tackle a challenge facing the sector, did you miss our last event? You can see the highilghts here

Ed Aspel Cancer research overherd opt in charity event


“The move for us to become an opt-in charity was driven by our desire to provide the best possible supporter experience.  Our supporters are at the heart of everything we do, so it’s really important that they understand what they’re opting in to, and actively choose to hear from us about all the things we’re doing, the events we’re running, our fundraising activities and how they can be involved.  We believe putting our supporters first will help us protect the future income of Cancer Research UK and safeguard our ambition to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
