Diversifying Income and Sustainability for Charity Leaders (AM Half Day)

It is a challenging time for the charity sector. The widely reported trend of an increased demand for services, coupled with income flat lining at best and decreasing for many, shows no signs of slowing. This workshop will consider what steps charities can take to strengthen their resilience, to diversify and expand their income in order to meet increased demand – and ultimately, continue to deliver impact.

Risk Management for Charity Leaders (PM Half Day)

A key responsibility for charity trustees is to ensure that there is a robust Risk Management regime in place. This supports the charity to deliver its mission effectively, enables the charity to seize opportunities as they emerge, as well as playing a significant role in the prevention of ‘disasters’ both small and large. Risk is an everyday part of charitable activity and managing it effectively is essential if the charity is to achieve its key objectives and ensure its funds and assets are safeguarded. In this training course, we will look at practical approaches to risk management from a charity leader and Trustee perspective.
