CivicRisk was founded on the basis of a single idea: The best way to build safer communities is by working together.
That’s why we offer the Continuous Risk Improvement Program (CRIP), which helps Councils achieve the goal of increasing resilience and gives us further understanding of how our members are managing their risk.
How Does It Work?
Every three years, the Mutual conducts audits through an independent service provider to assess the operations and risks of our members. These assessments happen in person, with interviews to key staff in order to develop a thorough understanding of the Council’s risk culture — including the frameworks and procedures in place to manage risks.
Based on this process, we gather the necessary information to develop best practices for risk management and benchmark members’ performance. We then provide them with bespoke training and support to help improve their risk profiles.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
