Data protection for local groups
Data handling guidance
Local groups must ensure that they comply with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
Our Data Handling Guidance (Word, 22KB) tells you everything you need to know about GDPR, and the key things local groups need to consider.
Our consent guidance for local groups (Word, 32KB) outlines what we mean by consent and what it means for local groups.
We've also put together the following documents to assist you with getting your local group members to re-consent.
- Re-consent letter for local groups (Word, 403KB)
- Local group consent form (PDF, 46KB)
- Local group consent form for new attendees (PDF, 46KB)
Local group reports
We need to change the way that we provide you with local group reports in order to comply with GDPR.
We've put together a list of local group reports FAQs (Word, 20KB) to explain why and how we're changing this process.
