Working in High Risk Areas: Duties and Regulatory Expectations

This report summarises a one-day workshop, hosted by the Charity Commission in 2015, centred on duties and regulatory expectations when working in high-risk environments. The workshop, convened in partnership with the Muslim Charities Forum, produced an open and wide-ranging discussion about issues plaguing the aid industry. Topics included: staff duties and legal requirements, assessing risk and knowing your principles, and moving and receiving funds.

The workshop focused on the duties of trustees of UK registered charities, but highlights useful best practice for all NGO employees operating in high-risk contexts. Security managers, in particular, may find the information useful.
