Running the risk? A risk management tool for volunteer involving organisations
Running the Risk? is a practical tool to assist volunteer involving organisations identify their risks and implement effective strategies for managing those risks.
The publication outlines why it is important to manage risk and provides a simple 4-step guide to identifying and treating risks. In addition, some case studies have been included which highlight the importance of managing risk and provide examples of how some organisations have dealt with their own risks.
Running the Risk? was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and developed for Volunteering Australia by the Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies at Queensland University of Technology. Professional advice and support was also provided by AON Risk Services Australia Ltd and MooresLegal.
Volunteering Australia would like to thank the Steering Committee who guided the development of the publication and those organisations that generously provided us with case studies to demonstrate the ways in which they have managed various risks.
