The Yorkshire & Humber Fraud Forum is a not-for-profit organisation that was created to support, encourage and protect the growth of the Yorkshire and Humberside economies by bringing the public and private sectors together to combat fraud and financial crime.
The key benefit of YHFF membership is becoming part of a valuable network of people directly involved in the business of combating fraud every day. The opportunity to share knowledge, experience and best practices – with your counterparts from within your own sector and outside – is an essential business requirement in today’s public and private sectors.
YHFF members are anti-fraud practitioners from a diverse range of companies and organisations, including corporates (small and large), financial intuitions, local authorities, health service organisations and law enforcement. The YHFF runs masterclasses throughout the year, which are a valuable opportunity for members to get together and hear about the latest developments and trends in fraud – and what can be done to prevent your business or organisation being affected.
The YHFF annual conference is a great way to meet with fellow anti-fraud practitioners, establish new contacts and renew existing ones.
The conference delegate fee of only £125 + VAT automatically includes a year’s membership of the YHFF, which provides free attendance at masterclasses throughout the year.
If you are unable to attend the conference, annual membership is available, at £80 +VAT. Please contact us on email@example.com. This provides attendance at three masterclasses throughout the year.
