The following is a list of sites referring to GDPR
Some of these may be touting for business. If they are, that is not why they were chosen to be included in this list. You may find some useful guidance here that relates to your organisation and what you need to do.
I am aware that some of the parent organisations of the charities I support are running training on GDPR and as such you are probably adequately covered for your operations. Others though have no centralised guidance, so are being left to their own devices. Hopefully these links will help, along with other things I have published on this site.
Information Commissioner Site

Probably answers most questions and is a comprehensive plain language guide.

What is personal information?
Is an IP address Personal Information?
Some of the websites I have built use a plugin called Fast Secure Contact Form. It was a very popular form handler highly regarded by users written by Mike Challis. The plugin was sold to a third party in June of this year and the new owner attempted to manipulate the code in the plugin to set up adverts.
Please check ASAP whether the version that is currently in use on your website is version 4.0.56. You can do that by logging in, and going to the Plugins page and look down the list. You will see an entry similar to the one below which includes the version number.
If you have version 4.0.56 you are OK! Don’t panic.
If your site is at an earlier version contact me immediately and I will sort out updating it.
(update: 6:00am 27/9/17 Nobody has reported a problem so far, all sites have upgraded automatically. That was to be expected. If you cannot find Fast Secure Contact form another method is used for forms on your website. Probably Form Manager. You are not affected by this notice.)
Why is this important?
