What could we achieve together to improve this support and be an even stronger community of  youth organisations?

GDPR training

Posted on

We managed to train nearly 150 people in GDPR compliance on the 17th April at Skreens Park, Essex. We ran three sessions and had an amazing trainer who really knew his stuff and was very down to earth.  The feedback is great and everyone was able to take a memory stick back to their organisations to help them implement their learning.
