Having a good governance is essential for a charity success.
Charity Governance Code is a useful tool for Charities and their trustees to develop and improve their governance.
The code has been reviewed, developed, promoted and maintained by the Charity Governance Code Steering group, a cross-sector collaboration with an independent chair, Rosie Chapman.
The steering group’s members are:
ACEVO: Charity Leaders Network
Association of Chairs
ICSA: The Governance Institute
NCVO: National Council for Voluntary Organisations
Small Charities Coalition
WCVA: Wales Council for Voluntary Action.
The Charity Commission is an observer on the group.
