Please note: this session is not delivered by RDA and will be attended by individuals outside of our organisation.

Engaging in training outside of RDA is valuable for learning across the wider sector. We encourage this as a way of sharing best practices and for networking opportunities. 



This session forms part of the Getting on Board Trustee Learning Programme.

The programme comprises free, high-quality training including webinars, clinics and panel discussions to support people to become and serve as effective trustees. 


Event Details

“Charity trustees are notoriously risk averse. And that’s not surprising given that they are entrusted with the good governance of a charity, with expectations weighing down on them from all directions.

Surely trustees are quite right to avoid risk like the plague?

Actually, perhaps not. If we are too risk averse, we can miss opportunities, stifle innovation and fail to invest in growth.

This session will be ideal for trustees interested in managing risks in their charities, who don’t have professional expertise in risk management.”


What Will The Panel Discuss?

01 Whether trustees are truly risk averse and, if so, whether they are right to be so

02 Good risk management, proportionate to the size of the charity

03 The most common types of risks affecting charities

04 Whether the relative weighting of risks is sometimes wrong

05 How charities can take informed risks.
