An informative round-up of tips for charities and non-profit organisations to get ahead and level up their risk management game for 2022!
An online tool to help you manage your governance and compliance activity. Built around a model of transparency and continual improvement, it allows everyone in your organisation to actively engage with improvement.
Assess your organisation against standards and frameworks, all whilst capturing evidence in a single place and tracking areas which need improvement. Manage your risks by assigning risks and actions to different groups within your organisation allowing them to take control.
Have a single action plan which combines your compliance and risk activity in one place, measuring the impact of all the activities you undertake.
Energise Advance helps trustees to manage their charities' relationships with the Charity Commission, with a view to achieving their desired outcomes in a cost-effective manner.
The compliance functionality enables you and your team members to view the up-to-date frameworks and regulations to ensure strong compliance.
You can create your own frameworks or select from a pre-existing template. Examples include:
- Charity Commission
With features such as the ability to quickly formulate actions plans, create control frameworks, engage in collaborative activity while identifying and recording risks, the Action Planning function provides your charity with a cost-effective solution to manage your risks and assurance requirements, for both small and large charities.
The risk management function allows you and your team members to collaboratively build a risk register to meet your requirements. It enables risks to be amended, saved and reconfigured quickly as and when needed, allowing everyone in your organisation to get involved while eliminating the headache of admin and errors.
The meeting management function allows team members to pull together all actions and risks in one central place and compile meeting attendance reports.
It provides actionable steps that can be undertaken in a simple, easy-to-manage system.
Conflict of interest
A conflict of interest is any situation in which a trustee's personal interests or loyalties could, or could be seen to, prevent the trustee from making a decision only in the best interests of the charity.
It is good practice for a charity's governing document to include provisions to deal with conflict of interest situations and a charity should be keeping a register of all these conflicts so they can be managed and mitigated
Energise:Advance allows you to track and monitor any conflicts of interest that you might have in one central place and be updated accordingly with regulations and frameworks as they change.
