Video interviews: Alexandra Rose Charity

Third Sector Promotion Markel

At the recent Third Sector Awards, specialist insurer Markel had the opportunity to speak to charities about the risks they face and how they manage them.

The Alexandra Rose Charity  provides ‘Rose Vouchers’ for fruit and veg to support pregnant women and families living on low incomes to eat more healthily and improve their wellbeing.

Jonathan Pauling, CEO of the Alexandra Rose Charity, discusses how the charity will continue to develop around increasing data protection regulation.

With the upcoming GDPR regulations, all charities need to be aware of data issues and compliance. Smaller charities - such as Alexandra Rose Charity - must be comply with regulations to support the work they do and allow them to grow in effective ways. This may mean a steep learning curve to engage with new technology to make the charity more effective in the long term.
