Risk Management – A Practical Guide to Risk Management in Your Organisation (Online Workshop)

Risk Management is a key aspect of good governance and you’ll find it highlighted in the Regulator’s Charities Governance Code under Principle 4.

Social enterprises, charities and community organisations face a myriad of risks, including: uncertain funding streams, working with vulnerable client groups, achieving strategic goals and having the desired impact, health and safety hazards, dealing with volunteers, etc. Although these risks cannot be avoided, their potential impact can be minimised through effective risk management.

This practical workshop will provide participants who are new to risk management the tools to design an actionable framework to assess and manage risk within their organisations. 

In particular, this practical workshop will help you:     

  • Create your own Risk Register using the above framework and reflect on it with others from the charity space
  • Learn from the experience and feedback of your sector peers
  • Access further information and resources on the topic.

Dates: 9 & 16 March 2023
