Charities working internationally can face certain risks because of their operating environment including the application of financial sanctions, greater levels of corruption or criminal activity, the presence of terrorists, proscribed groups or designated entities.
The Charity Commission, as a risk-led regulator, we focus on areas of higher risk and we expect the same of trustees. The Charity Commissions International Charities Engagement Team recently published a blog to help you assess risk more effectively. It also includes links to risk management tools, which can help you protect your charity from harm.
