    Do you accept Sodexo childcare vouchers?

    A number of PACEY members have alerted us to an issue with childcare voucher supplier Sodexo. These members have received a message from Sodexo saying they must complete a form and return it to them, as part of GDPR compliance. This form incorrectly assumes that providers are data processors of Sodexo's data. PACEY has raised concerns with Sodexo and is advising members not to take any action until PACEY has sought legal advice on members’ behalf.
