Fundraising Regulations and GDPR

Fundraising, Legal

Start date


End date




The workshop looks at who the regulatory bodies for fundraising are and what they regulate. We examine GDPR, PECR and the other regulations governing fundraising activities. We describe each of the most important procedures to follow. Past enforcement actions and the penalties issued to organisations that broke the rules are described. We explain how to prepare a check list of points you need to ensure that your organisation follows. We look at how best to explain the regulations throughout your organisation and ensure that they are followed by staff, trustees, volunteers and supporters.

What you will learn


Workshops consist of talk, discussions, questions and answers. There are no power points or audio visuals used. Each workshop follows a script. By using scripts more topics can be covered in less time with complete accuracy. If you don't like listening to someone talk then you won't enjoy the workshop. Participants are sent a full copy of the script by email after the workshop. Many participants have found it useful to have a copy of a script which matched word for word what was said on the workshop.

What you require


Staff members, volunteers, trustees or board members of charities, schools, not for profits or public sector organisations who are involved in, or have responsibilities for, fundraising, administration or data processing. People who provide advice to these organisations are also welcome.
