Because of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) The Charity Commission must let people know if any of their personal information is updated on the register of charities. They say simplest and quickest way of doing this will be to email the given charity when their information is updated.
The Commission says they will also use email to help trustees comply with charity law and run their charity effectively, by sending important regulatory alerts and updates.
They will also be asking charities check that the register details for their trustees remain up to date. This includes adding any new trustees and their contact details. They also ask that charities the details of any trustees who are no longer involved with that charity.
