Independent and impartial assurance to help you manage your authority

Cuts have been made to national parks funding over the past decade, with resources and services suffering. New opportunities need to be identified to generate income and manage risks.

Veritau has worked with several large national parks for many years, providing a range of assurance services, including:

  • Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority
  • North York Moors National Park Authority
  • Peak District National Park Authority
Internal audit

By taking an independent view of your key business processes, risks and objectives, we provide insights that add real value. We ask the right questions, take time to understand your operations and priorities, and support you to make improvements where needed.

Counter fraud

Specially trained officers can work with your staff to raise awareness of fraud and investigate it when it may occur. We have a dedicated whistleblowing service and investigate a wide range of fraud with confidentiality and sensitivity.

Information governance and data protection officer

We act as the data protection officer (DPO) for over 500 public sector organisations. Our officers are experts in information governance and can also help with information access requests (eg FOI and SARs), information security, and data protection frameworks.

Risk management

Creating a risk-aware culture is key to good governance. Veritau’s team of professionals can help you to manage risk effectively and understand your risk appetite. Our approach is to work with you to make risk-intelligent decisions, reduce your risk exposure, and help you succeed.
