There is undoubtedly more pressure to demonstrate good governance than ever before.
Treading the path between not getting too involved in management of the charity, but not being so removed that a trustee is not aware what is happening. is a difficult line to follow. A well prepared and regularly reviewed risk register will enhance governance, as will the formal review of the Board’s collective skills and regular trustee appraisal processes. Charities should have good processes for managing conflicts of interest.
With charities coming increasingly under the spotlight, it is more important than ever that good governance arrangements are in place. It is good practice to undertake a review of arrangements from time to time, encompassing policies and procedures, and a skills audit of the board members, to identify recruitment and training needs.
We have significant experience in providing a wide variety of governance reviews ranging from a review of the corporate structure through to the use of committees via a scheme of delegation. We can help you develop a framework to enable you to deliver your objectives in the most efficient and effective way. We would be pleased to discuss this with you in more detail.
The support and technical advice that has been provided to me in my role as Chief Executive of the charity and to the Trustees has been proactive and of the highest standard. This has been particularly so at Trustee level, for example, in recommending a review of our reserved policy and in assisting with the design of management information. Routeways Centre, Plymouth
