Effective administration is essential to your organisation. Managing information, records, and making sure you have relevant policies and procedures in place helps with the smooth running of your organisation. Information technology (IT) develops quickly. While it is not possible to keep up with every development, it is important that technology is utilised appropriately and does not become a blockage to effectiveness.

It is important that you think about risk to your charity/organisation.The first step is to consider the possible risks and identify them. Creating a risk management plan is an approach that:
- recognises risk
- considers the likely probability of the risk occurring
- identifies the likely impact should the risk occur and
- describes how the risk will be managed.
For a risk management plan see Risk Management Plan – overview and template
The Risk Management Toolkit is a resource to assist with identifying and understanding risk factors for an organisation, create a risk management policy and manage and monitor the risks identified.
