We recently met to discuss the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) laws which affect organisations across Europe, coming into force on 25th May 2018.

This is a good thing for the protection of personal data and means big businesses won’t be able to sell your personal information, and will have to follow new rules about when and how they can contact you. However, it also affects small organisations and charities who are trying to do great things for communities – like us – and we’ll need to make sure we’re also following the rules.

We’re asking you (our members) to update your details and to confirm which information you’re happy for us to contact you with. This can be done by re-completing our membership form. It will only take a few minutes to update your details and will mean that you won’t miss out on all the great things we have to tell you.

Thanks for your support while we make these changes. With your help, we can get this done quickly and efficiently before the deadline.
