The Information Commissioner’s Officer has published its guidance on consent, one of the central planks of the new GDPR regulations.

You can find this on the ICO website.  There is also a blog there, expanding on the guidance, and exploring more myths that have arisen around GDPR.

This is the most helpful and comprehensive advice for GDPR, and contains a number of hlepful information sheets or pages, some designed specifically for small charities.
