Big Advice Day: Workshop Programme

MORNING SESSIONS

10.10 – 10.50:  Core Costs – How charities can be more innovative and resilient.  Beth Clarke, Charities Aid Foundation (CAF)

This session will explore some of the early findings of the CAF Resilience Programme. It will look at why core funding is essential for the long-term ability of small charities to deliver great services. It will also look at how to get this message across to the public and grant funders who expect their funds to go on delivery of services over core costs


11.10 – 11.50: Managing Risk during a Crisis. Neil Franklin, UKCI

The Charity Commission places great emphasis on good governance and the avoidance of unnecessary negative risk. You can’t underestimate the impact of effective risk management on a charity’s ability to survive, especially during these difficult times. Many small charities don’t possess the necessary knowledge or training required to fully understand the risks their activities expose them to or how best to manage them. And who could have predicted COVID-19? For trustees, directors and managers – our interactive masterclass will help you explore the typical risks you face and show you how to manage or mitigate them for the protection of your charity, your staff and your beneficiaries. We’ll also touch on the implications of COVID-19 – what insurers are doing to help charities and what we’ve all learnt. The masterclass will cover such topics as:

  • What are the roles & responsibilities of trustees in managing risk?
  • Attitude to risk
  • Appropriate internal systems and controls
  • COVID-19 – what it means for us, what it means for you
  • Collaborations/joint ventures/change of activities
  • Working with employees and volunteers – things to consider
  • Preparing in advance to survive a catastrophe – reputation and continuity
  • Protecting your trustees and officers as they carry out their duties
  • The importance of fit for purpose and confidence-inspiring cover
  • One vital check you need to make in relation to historical claims

Cyber risks, volunteer travel, entity defence …and much more.
