New Resources Added to Help You!

We wanted to draw your attention to the latest additions to the Support Cambridgeshire website.

We’re excited to introduce some significant enhancements to the Support Cambridgeshire website that we believe will benefit all our users significantly.

Out with the old and in with the new! We’ve updated our factsheet pages, removing old templates and outdated documents. Now, you’ll find valuable information, expert tips, and direct links to trusted sources and helpful websites. This makes it easier to find important information without searching through old guides.

We have broken the site into areas where we know you need that support. These include Safeguarding, GDPR, Health and Safety and many more. In those pages, we have looked at the things we think you need to know about and then linked with resources and other information or support sites with more information.

We aim to give groups the information they are looking for quickly and effectively, and if there is anything more you need, feel free to contact us, and we can send it across. This webpage sits alongside the On Demand training portal, which holds videos and information anyone in Cambridgeshire can access.

Experience these exciting changes firsthand by exploring our revamped resources page: https://supportcambridgeshire.org.uk/resources/

Remember, Support Cambridgeshire is here to assist you. Don’t hesitate to contact us directly for any assistance or if you have specific questions.

Plans to extend marketing ‘soft opt-in’ to charities

Exemption to consent could be extended to not-for-profits. In a move welcomed by the Institute of Fundraising, the Government has confirmed it intends to extend the use of the ‘soft-opt in’ for electronic marketing to charities under UK data reform plans.

The Data Protection Network holds an article on ‘What soft opt-in’ is, how to use this within your marketing and future changes to GDPR.
