10 am - 12 pm

Identifying risk and establishing ways of reducing risk is a key part of our governance and a legal requirement.  The session will cover the detail of a risk management policy to take account of the range of risks councils face, from public money to council activities, insurance, health and safety, and financial risks. There is an overview of policies and regulations which should be in place to support risk management.
