Governing to Protect Vulnerable People
Many institutions have a duty of care to some of the most vulnerable groups in society. This means providing safety, support or simply a stable environment to access services that are vital to children, the aged, the disabled, the homeless, the mentally unwell and many more.
Directors and stewards of organisations have a responsibility to speak up and to shine a light on complex and opaque governance structures that allow for wrongdoing to go unnoticed or wilfully ignored.
This new one-day course, which has recently launched in Tasmania, is ideal for new and existing directors seeking a greater understanding of the governance requirements when working with vulnerable people. Participants will learn key governance lessons from recent instituational failures and how to facilitate a culture of accountability and disclosure at your organisation.

- Apply the key governance lessons from recent instituational failures and how to identify if your organisation is at risk of failure to protect vulnerable people;

- Equip your stakeholders with the assurance that their concerns will be listend to, taken seriously and acted upon;
- Implement transparent frameworks for resposibility sharing and avoiding concentration of influence amongst a select few; and
