What is risk management?

Risk management is the process of identifying potential dangers and trying to lessen or eliminate them. It's an ongoing process which supports good decision making and gives us confidence to deliver our aims and objectives

Is this for you?

It’s for all employees and volunteers. 

Key points

  • Risk assessments will be conducted on all new activities and projects to ensure they are in line with the charity’s objectives and mission.
  • Significant risks and the progress on their actions will be reported to the board of trustees, the audit and risk committee and the corporate leadership team in a consistent and timely manner.
  • The principle tool used for identifying and assessing risks and associated control measures is the risk register.

Your responsibilities

All employees and volunteers are responsible for identifying and managing risk. This involves complying with this policy and taking any relevant training.

All managers are directly responsible for implementing this policy in their operational areas.
