To get the most out the session, we're asking attendees to think about the individual categories of personal data that your co-op processes (e.g. member, employee, customer, supplier). We have added a basic template to our GDPR resource page, where our FREE 'Get your co-op GDPR ready' guide is also available. Please also come to the session with any data protection questions you might have as there will be time to discuss these. Read about our GDPR for co-ops toolkit in full.


About the training

On 25 May, GDPR will become law, meaning every business will have to change the way it handles personal data. Aimed at co-ops that collect and process the personal data of their members, this interactive session will:

  • Build on the information available in Co-operatives UK's 'Get your co-op GDPR ready' guide.
  • Take you through the key elements of GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation.
  • Enable you to discuss the issues and get specific answers about implementing the GDPR for your co-op.

Training covers

  • Details of the key changes GDPR introduces.
  • Equipping co-ops with the tools to produce documentation to demonstrate their compliance with data protection law.
  • Opportunity to ask questions about how the new law affects the personal information your co-op holds.
  • Discussion of GDPR with peers.

To ensure that you get the most out of the workshop, we ask that you think about the individual categories of personal data that your co-op processes (e.g. member, employee, customer, supplier). We have prepared a basic template for you on our GDPR resource page, where you can also download our FREE 'Get your co-op GDPR ready' guide. Please also come to the session with any data protection questions you might have as there will be time to discuss these.
