Getting to Grips with GDPR

Getting to Grips with GDPR

Are you struggling to interpret the new GDPR legislation? Would you find it useful to share your experiences with other organisations, discuss common challenges and identify next steps forward?

Getting to Grips with GDPR is a series of discussions groups facilitated by Dr Mary Darking, Senior Lecturer in Social Policy and Innovation at the University of Brighton. They will create the space to allow organisations to share common issues, questions and challenges around GDPR, and will offer guidance and advice either on what action to take or where to look for more support.  Each session will be set by the questions of the people who attend, which could include:

  •          Issues around GDPR and volunteering
  •          How to start a data review process
  •          Reviewing policies and procedures in light of GDPR

Each session is limited to 8 organisations, and are free to attend.  They are most appropriate for individuals who will be taking a lead on GDPR within their organisation, whether this is a trustee, staff member or volunteer.

We are expecting these sessions to have high demand so places are limited to one per organisation, and organisations must be members of Community Works to attend.  You may not attend repeat sessions.  The session in Worthing will be prioritised to members operating in Adur & Worthing, and sessions in Brighton will be prioritised to members operating in Brighton & Hove.
