Health and Safety
Depending what you are doing, you may need to carry out a risk assessment before your event takes place. This is to help you work out what might cause harm or problems during your activity and to give you time to get in place any precautions you may need before your event. This is particularly important if your activity involves food. You may need to speak to your local environmental health officer beforehand. If in doubt check with your local authority.
You must respect the confidentiality of anyone taking part in your event. If you have names and contact numbers for participants for example, these must be kept securely. Don’t share information about anyone without permission. Check out this link for further information: https://www.gov.uk/data-protection/the-data-protection-act.
