With the ever increasing quantity of sensitive material held by the public sector about citizens, there is a desire for people to know what is held about them, and great risks in failing to handle it appropriately.

So we are delighted to announce that Information Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham will be our keynote speaker talking about information rights and the statutory responsibilities of public bodies. This will be a joint event with PCF’s sister organisation the Association of Chief Executives.

All meetings will take place in our offices in Carlton Gardens, London. Visit the contact us page for full location details.

Adhoc seminars will be arranged around fixed date seminars as necessary, in order to be as responsive as possible to the current environment and requirements of PCF members.

Existing PCF members are encouraged to get in touch and share their thoughts on useful, topical and interesting idea for future speakers and events.

If you are a Chair of a Public Body but are not yet a member of the PCF, and are interested in finding out more, please contact us. We offer your first meeting free of charge, with no obligation to join.
