Risk

Charities continue to be challenged by a wide range of risks that can affect all areas of their organisation. As we have learnt through recent events affecting well-known charities, it’s more important than ever that risk management is embraced by all operations of a charity, not just the internal financial team. Add to that the number of codes and standards on risk that charities need to work to, and it’s clear that managing risk should be at the top of the agenda.

Our guides and resources help you to embed a strong foundation of risk management throughout your whole organisation. Explore this section for advice on identifying risks (both internal and external), defining your organisational appetite for risk, tools you can use for measuring and monitoring, and how to manage a crisis and report when something does go wrong.
