For a few years now, a global cultural movement has been building, as a positive response to Black Friday. In 2018 - it is coming to Bristol!

The concept of Black Friday sits very differently with different people. Although embraced by a large number, who take to the shops in their droves, many others object to the consumerism on varying grounds, wanting something more enriching for local people to get involved in.

This resource from Charity Finance Group gives a thorough overview of the GDPR and presents information from different perspectives, for example, a section explaining the legislation for trustees. Keep in mind, however, this does not provide practical advice on implementing changes relating to GDPR.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force on 25 May 2018. Organisations are being urged to take action now, as it may take a considerable amount of time to implement the necessary changes.
