Charitable trustees and risk management - planning for the unforeseen.

11 January 2016

Today's charity leaders have a lot to contend with. Aside from the challenges associated with delivering their objectives, trustees and senior managers must keep apace with a multitude of developments within technology, local environments and the political, financial and legal spheres – all of which bring their own set of risks and opportunities.

 The voluntary nature of trusteeship is one of the key principles of the charity sector. But trustees are increasingly expected to adopt a 'professional' approach and to be aware of the legal responsibilities of their role.

 The Charity Commission wants to attract a diverse group of people to become trustees but despite these new trustees increasing the skills and experience base on boards, they may have little or no previous experience of the demands of trusteeship.

 By involving trustees in the risk management process from the start, it will minimise chances of something going wrong on their watch.
