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.
Governing to Protect Vulnerable People, facilitated by the AICD, comprises a one-day course plus diagnostic and take-away tools. The course is delivered by an experienced facilitator, with short activities and case studies included to guide discussion. The number of course participants is limited to enable small group work and table discussion.
Our facilitators are experienced company directors. They are selected based on their knowledge of the board environment, their subject matter expertise on the topics addressed as well as their ability to engage and connect with participants.
This course will provide tools for you to:
- Apply the key governance lessons from recent institutional failures and how to identify if your organisation is at risk of failure to protect vulnerable people;
- Facilitate a culture of accountability and disclosure at your organisation;
- Understand what is required to develop holistic and inclusive complaints handling systems;
- Equip your stakeholders with the assurance that their concerns will be listened to, taken seriously and acted upon;
- Implement transparent frameworks for responsibility sharing and avoiding concentration of influence amongst a select few; and
- Deliver on your social mission.
