Anatomy of an investigation: charity insider fraud

This practical and interactive session on charity insider fraud will consider the real-life case study of a financial controller who stole £360,000 from a Bristol-based charity supporting young people.

The session will include a panel discussion with those involved in the case: the charity, its lawyer and its forensic accountant and will explore:

  • the challenges facing the senior management of a victim organisation;
  • the investigation process, challenges and opportunities;
  • the roles and responsibilities of key participants (internal staff and external advisers);
  • the legal and other avenues to mitigate losses;
  • keeping on the right side of the law; and
  • key learning points for other organisations.

Guest speakers:

Dom Wood, Chief Executive of 1625 Independent People
Brendan Weekes, Senior Manager in Forensic Services at Smith & Williamson
Adam Finch
, Partner at Harrison Clark Rickerbys
Laura Hough, Deputy Head of Counter Fraud Management at British Council will chair the event.


This session will be of interest to those new to tackling fraud or looking to get involved within the charity and not-for-profit sectors. This includes accountants, lawyers, fraud investigators, internal and external auditors, trustees and charity staff.
