ALARM National Forum for Risk Management in the Public Sector

ALARM aims to make a positive contribution to loss reduction in the Public Sector. By working in collaboration, ALARM brings together a variety of experiences. We wish to share this pool of knowledge amongst all Public Services to avoid duplication of effort and further waste of precious resources. We also aim to provide, over a period of time, some guidance in terms of best practice for both new and more experienced Risk Managers. At the same time we aim to influence the national agencies which are directly involved with the provision of Public Services. We are committed to the partnership approach as this, in our view, is the most effective way to stem the ever-rising impact on our budgets of growing losses and an increasing claims experience.
