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, questions and answers. There are no power points, audio visuals, break out sessions, role playing exercises or group activities. Participants are not expected to introduce themselves. Workshops run better if participants are on video but it is not compulsory. Each workshop follows a script. By using scripts more topics can be covered in less time with complete accuracy. Participants are sent a copy of the script by email after the workshop. The trainer may add unscripted remarks during the workshop to liven things up. Workshops do not require prior knowledge. Everything is explained in everyday language. Jargon and acronyms are kept to a minimum.

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.
