Register your attendance: Protecting Vulnerable People forum
June 27th, 2018
You can’t fight today’s threats with yesterday’s risk strategies
Ansvar is a leading risk and insurance provider for the Care, Faith, Community, Education and Heritage sectors and every year we host educational forums that are relevant to the markets current climate. Whether you’re a broker or from an organisation in our specialist sectors and want updated knowledge from our expert panelists on how you can tighten the focus on risk management, please join us and register your attendance to our free educational forum.
This year our forums will focus on Protecting Vulnerable People in the Changing Risk and Governance Landscape.
Our specialist sectors provide essential services for vulnerable people and are becoming increasingly more complex. Yet while complexity increases, risk management frameworks and risk governance have not kept pace or evolved sufficiently.
We know that traditional risk management just doesn’t cut it anymore.
Organisations are telling us that they want to tighten the focus on risk management so that it becomes an integral part of how they make decisions, prevents harms and optimises outcomes.
Providing services to vulnerable people requires a unique way of considering risk and governance.
Brokers play an important role in assisting clients with their journey to improve risk management.
The forum will equip you with:
– Key considerations regarding governance in our specialist sectors
– Important advice for clients in the context of services for vulnerable people
– Examples of how culture has impacted outcomes organisations and key learnings
– Updated knowledge of risks and disrupters confronting our specialist sectors
– Helping clients to broaden their thinking on new and emerging risks.
– Insights into the necessary change in focus with risk management; particularly risk culture, decision making and resilience.

We had to share these wonderful words from the Lighthouse Foundation's Michelle Michie, Philanthropy Manager. The Lighthouse Foundation were one of our 2016/ 2017 Community Education Program Grant Recipients.....
“We are immensely grateful for this support which has been crucial in life changing work which has helped so many young homeless girls get off to a healthy start with their newborns. I wish you could experience what I do, when I see these girls graduate to independent living with a strong attachment to their child. Without this help, so many of them would not have been able to manage, and would have given up their baby into the state care system.
Thank you for the partnership, and the tangible feeling that the Ansvar team truly cared about homeless children and young people, and that you had their back.”
