Services to Humanitarian Organisations


Services to Humanitarian Organisations

As the UK Charity Commission states: “Charities working internationally may face particular risks due to their operating environment including the application of financial sanctions, greater levels of corruption or criminal activity and the presence of terrorists, proscribed groups or designated entities.”

Before Covid struck key decision makers in the Humanitarian Charity sector identified the following key risks to their Organisation: Reputation; Corruption, Conflict/Political instability; Terrorism; Difficulty in ground communication or miscommunication; Poor behaviour/management of partner Organisations, and finally, Safeguarding of employees/contractors.

Covid-19 adds new dimensions of risk to this already long list of concerns.

The primary goal for any Humanitarian organisation is to deliver their services safely, at the point of need, at the time they are needed; Matris Risk solutions are designed to assist these objectives, in the planning, the now, and the future.

Some of the key risks that Humanitarian Charity decision makers have to address, are not limited to the following:

  • Covid-19
  • Climate risk
  • Political risk
  • External vendors
  • Operational risk
  • Reputational risk
  • Fraud risk
  • Governance & Compliance
  • IT & Cyber risk
  • GDPR & Data Protection risk
