Risk and safeguarding have never been so fundamental to how charities and other third sector organisations carry out their activities. This seminar will consider the issues against a backdrop including:

  • There has also been a 'media spotlight' on the issues and greater public expectations.
  • Regulators are also strongly highlighting that trustees must have current, robust and appropriate policies and practices to address key risks and maintain safeguarding.
  • The focus on safeguarding risks should remind trustees and management about wider risk management, insurance, liability, legal form choice and regulatory matters such as 'notifiable events'.
  • Some of the issues will introduce multi-regulator considerations to ensure compliance and the effective provision of good service and activities.
