Risk Management for Nonprofits

Community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises face a myriad of risks, including uncertain funding streams, working with vulnerable client groups, health and safety hazards, dealing with volunteers etc.

Risk cannot be avoided, but most types of risk can be anticipated and therefore planned for. By properly managing risk, the negative effects of hazards can be reduced. It is important that people who run nonprofit organisations, whether as volunteers or paid staff, are aware of the risks involved and feel comfortable dealing with them.

This practical workshop will help you:      

  • assess the risks facing you and your organisation
  • develop an effective strategy to deal with this risk
  • access further information and resources on the topic.
