The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)




The Association has been notified of a FREE Event for providers in both Norfolk and Suffolk





GDPR Seminar – The Clock is Ticking

What your Care Home needs to do now to comply


1st March – Ipswich, Trinity Park, Suffolk Showground

6th March – Norwich, Norwich City Football Club


Both seminars run from 5-7:00pm and are free to attend.


What is GDPR?


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect in May 2018. This new law gives individuals new rights and substantially increases the penalties for non-compliance. The GDPR applies to any organisation which processes data about individuals whether personnel, customers, prospects, website users or others.


Why should I attend?


James Tarling is a Partner at Ashtons Legal. He is an experienced lawyer who has specialised in helping businesses develop compliant data management systems and processes, as well as helping organisations manage data breaches.


In this practical session James will be cutting through the myths and misinformation about GDPR and will concentrate on the key issues that you need to know and what you need to do. The GDPR is an important change to existing data protection law requiring action from businesses and organisations. However, the good news is that James will guide you through the steps that you need to take now to ensure that your business complies when the GDPR comes into effect this May.


Who should attend?


Care home owners, managers and those responsible for IT, HR and any data custodians within their business, whether large or small.




To book please contact me at or on 01603 703094. You can also book online at our website If you cannot make the seminar yourself, please feel free to pass this invitation onto a colleague. These seminars are free to attend and plenty of tea, coffee and cake will be supplied.


With kindest regards

Join us as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Cycle Ride with a new walking route!
We are marking the 10th anniversary of our Sponsored Cycle Ride in Ipswich on Saturday 12 May with a new 10 mile walking route for those who prefer to be on their feet!

The walk, which heads along Felixstowe Road and Woodbridge Road, complements the popular 28 and 40 mile cycling routes – all of which start (at 9am) and finish at our hub at Epsilon House, West Road, Ransomes Europark.

Hundreds of cyclists, experienced and inexperienced, have raised over a fantastic £45,000 for Headway Suffolk’s services since it started in 2009.

It is open to everyone and is an ideal team-building exercise for companies, as well as generating great team spirit, a sense of fun and, of course, healthy exercise!

It’s just £10 to participate unless you have sponsorship.
