Risk appetite is the type and amount of risk that an organisation is prepared to accept or avoid. 

Clear risk appetite guidelines allow staff to confidently make decisions within agreed risk boundaries, encouraging flexibility and accountability. Setting and communicating risk appetite within the organisation also supports effective governance, strategy, culture and reporting. 

Learning objectives

  • Understand the concept of risk appetite and the value it can bring
  • Explore tools and techniques to consider and define your risk appetite and tolerance
  • Examine case studies where different risk appetite approaches have been used


This session is suited to people interested in risk management from a range of public sector and community services organisations.
