Information to assist volunteers to understand the elements of risk management and insurance

Insurance and risk

Groups should always consider the risks that arise from operating and interacting with others. Risks might involve volunteers, the public and members.

Your group may need to develop a risk-management strategy, which could include insurance as well as practical steps that can reduce risks.

It's important to include risk assessment as a standing agenda in your organisation.

When your group enters into new relationships or conducts new activities, make sure new risks are considered.
