Our records indicate that the organisation you work with (or volunteer for) is currently registered with DEVELOP and that we hold some information about you in our database.

We are writing to let you know that DEVELOP, the charity which currently holds your data, has merged its services with another charity called Community First. This is due to a cut in funding for the Infrastructure Support and Development of the Voluntary Sector contract by Wiltshire Council.

Organisations like yours make Wiltshire nicer place to live and we know that maintaining a database of local VCSE organisations is important for the sector. This is why DEVELOP has decided to transfer ownership of the database to Community First so that we can continue providing support to the voluntary sector in Wiltshire.

What does this mean for me?

In short it means that as of 12th January 2017 the information we hold about your organisation including contact information and any other details you supplied to us when you registered, will be owned and managed by Community First.

Whilst the ownership of the database is changing, the information we hold about your organisation will remain in the same location and under the same security measures. Your data will not be compromised, moved or otherwise transferred. Similarly, the information we hold about you will not be shared with anyone outside of Community First.

What do I need to do?

If you are happy with what we have told you, you don’t need to respond to this email or write to us and you can continue using our service Volunteer Connect as normal.

If you would like to withdraw your information from the database, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Laura Naylor: lnaylor (at)

The Data Protection contact at Community First is Samantha Beale. She is responsible for ensuring that the information we hold about you in our database is kept confidential. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact her by email: sbeale (at) or in writing:
