Despite the UK exiting the EU, the British government has said GDPR will still apply and charities must comply. Many charities are still learning the details of the new regulation and whether or not their current data practices will still comply with data protection law.

This breakfast briefing aims to cut through the confusion and give you practical advice to ensure your charity is prepared for the future.
