Event aims

Risks are and will always be present within any size of organisation. Do you understand your risks, what they are, and your role in managing them?

All trustees have a duty to regularly review and assess the risks faced by their charity and plan for the management of those risks.

This training will help you manage your risk management process to support resilience across your organisation.

This live, interactive training focuses on the role in practice. Along with our four other ‘bitesize learning’ sessions and ‘Being the Best Trustee’ our training will support you in your role as trustee and ensure you are meeting the Charity Good Governance Code.

Who should attend?

This training is aimed at all individuals who are involved in the organisation in any capacity including trustees and employees.

Please note this training is aimed at organisations and groups based in North Yorkshire or delivering services within North Yorkshire.

What will you learn?

  • The use of a risk register in helping trustees identify the risks that apply to their charity.
  •  How to classify the risks that are strategic or major risks, and those that are less serious.
  • The benefits of managing risks with an effective risk register.
  • Ten of the typical weaknesses of risk registers.
