GDPR Guidance

WELCOME to our updated GDPR information pages, based on the NALC Toolkit. As part of our "learning together" campaign and, following the recent announcement regarding the potential changes for all Parish and Town Councils and Parish Meetings, we have broken down the steps you need to take as part of working towards compliance.

Whilst the NALC Toolkit is a lengthy document it is an excellent reference tool. Remember also to send queries through to the SALC team. We have developed some helpful FAQs to share learning across our membership. To raise a query just email SALC.
