Volunteer Training

Come and be inspired at our Volunteer Training Days. We'll make sure you're resourced as you share in our mission to bring the Bible to life.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

With the introduction of GDPR, you will begin to see our updated ‘promise’ that tells you how we will handle your personal data here at Bible Society. 

We ask that you destroy any old forms that you have and only use the new ones. Whilst you may feel that this is a waste of resources, we are sure you will understand the importance of being legally compliant.

You can order replacement forms by emailing supporter.materials@biblesociety.org.uk.

Tell us how many of each that you would like:

  • xx copies of PR000399 – Gift Envelopes
  • xx copies of PR000398 – Collection Boxes
  • xx copies of PR000371 – Bible a Month forms

GDPR is causing a few concerns amongst volunteers about keeping contacts’ details secure.  Where you hold names and addresses on behalf of Bible Society, you should keep the data secure. If the data is kept on a computer, it should be locked with a secure password (at least 12 characters); if it is on paper, then it should be locked in a cupboard/filing cabinet with limited access. The information should only be used for Bible Society purposes and never shared with anyone else.

We know there are many scenarios which leave us feeling uncertain of what is and what is not permitted and we hope the guidelines above will help. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office on 01793 418 222.
