Mairead O’Reilly quoted in Third Sector

Mairead O’Reilly has been quoted in a recent Third Sector article regarding fundraising and the General Data Protection Regluation (GDPR).


The article highlights how charities now need to take action in the lead up to the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation. The GDPR will supersede the Data Protection Act, bringing in tighter rules about data processing and who organisations can contact.

Mairead was quoted in the article, saying “it seems charities that have relied on consent that doesn’t meet the GDPR standard will have to refresh all of those consents if they want to rely on them after May 2018.”
