Recognising and reporting serious incidents- what you need to know

The aim of the workshop is to provide an opportunity to hear about the way in which the Charity Commission views serious incidents and how they handle the reports which are made to them. This is about helping you understand the reasons for reporting a serious incident in your charity. Whilst the circumstances of incidents vary in type and in the impact they have, Chairs and trustees can work to limit the likelihood of an incident happening and to minimise the impact on the charity when they do. We will take a closer look at fraud and safeguarding as these are areas where serious incidents are most common. Representatives of the Charity Commission will talk to us about their approach to these issues and lead group discussions on the issues.

Timings for the event are:

  • 1.30 pm- Registration and refreshments
  • 2:00 pm – Start
  • 5:00 pm – Drinks reception and networking
  • 6:00 pm – Close

This event is open to Chairs and Vice Chairs. Priority for places is given to AoC members.
