As one of the most reputable children’s charities in Australia we accept that appropriate risk is a part of what we do to take advantage of opportunities that improve and expand our services and programs and ultimately, a positive impact for children 0-15 years facing cancer.
We understand that considered risks are an inherent part of delivering our strategy, innovating and creating long term sustainable value for all of our stakeholders.
Our Board, CEO and senior management team, formally set and agree our risk appetite as part of the discussions on strategy, as well as the approval process for the annual operational plan and budget.
Risk, safety and compliance is monitored internally through the Risk and Safety Committee, which meets every six weeks. This Committee reports to the Risk, Audit and Compliance Committee.
Risk and safety is regularly assessed by the Risk, Audit and Compliance Committee with full oversight from the Board of Directors. This involves the Board discussing and agreeing the key factors which they believe can affect the level of risk we are willing to take to deliver our objectives and ensure we achieve our vision of giving kids facing cancer, and their family, the chance to be kids again, in a safe and inclusive environment.
