Fraud is now the most common crime in this country and poses a significant threat to the well-being of every charity. 

It is important for trustees and managers to have the right knowledge and skills to protect their charity and make it fraud resilient. 

This practical half-day workshop for charities will explain what you need to know about fraud and why.  It will cover:

  • The cyber-fraud and financial crime landscape
  • Identifying and assessing the key areas of internal and external fraud risk
  • Understanding your responsibilities in safeguarding your charity’s funds
  • Hallmarks of an effective approach to protecting your charity from fraud.

The facilitators are: Alan Bryce (Charity Commission), Vicky Szulist (Crowe Clark Whitehill) and Dr Stephen Hill (Fraud Advisory Panel).
