Sector warned of partnership dangers

"It is no surprise to see partnerships emerge as the key risk in the sector," said Paul Emery, head of charities and the voluntary sector at Zurich. "Understanding how changing responsibilities influence risk is key. It is the responsibility of each partner to identify this before agreeing a contract."
