Charity trustees need to be aware of risk and how to manage it. Small charities have to face risk as much as larger charities do, but the scale and risk factors may be different. However, given that any charity can be damaged by fraud, safeguarding incidents or other areas of bad practice, it is essential that their trustees know what to look out for and how to prevent such incidents occurring.
This training will give pointers to areas of risk to be aware of and what to do about them. The good news is that all risk can be managed and that a proactive approach can save a lot of headaches later on! The training will cover Charity Commission guidance and best practice in an easily accessible format specifically aimed at the trustees of small charities, to include lessons from recent decisions and break-out sessions for group discussions.
A bout the Facilitators
The training will be led by Virginia Henley and Saffa Mir. Virginia is a Legal Director and the Head of Charities, Education and Social Enterprise and Saffa is a newly qualified and tremendously capable lawyer. Both have extensive experience in the charities sector, as lawyers and as trustees themselves and so are well placed to give training, reassurance and guidance to charity trustees, whether experienced or new in the post.
Free for Hunts Forum and CCVS members. Non-members will be charged. To discuss costs for non-members email Keith Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org for details and to book.
