Governance

Excellent governance underpins excellent charitable outcomes. We’re here to help you achieve that.

Governance can mean different things to different people. We focus on the legal, regulatory and best practice requirements for charities. And we don’t just have decades of experience in helping charities to achieve great governance. Many of us are trustees ourselves, bringing a depth of understanding to the advice we give.

Whatever governance issue you’re tackling, from major structural considerations through to implementing best practice in your policies and procedures, we have the expertise to support you.

How we help

Perhaps you’re looking for an inclusive trustee induction programme – to support you in recruiting trustees and developing their skills. We can design it for you.

Are you worried that your governing document is out of date and those that need to understand and use it can’t? We can modernise it so that it’s accessible and user-friendly.

Has your organisation grown or changed so that you are no longer sure the right people are making the right decisions at the right level? Let us help you put in place a workable scheme of delegation and a governance framework. With time saved on knowing who makes the decision, your teams can focus on reaching the community you serve.

If it’s been a while since your governance arrangements were evaluated, we can carry out a governance review, to give you a top-level view of any risks or key areas to focus on. We provide you with a roadmap towards best governance practice, detailing the next steps to take.

This is just a snapshot of some of the ways we can assist. We advise across the full spectrum of charity governance matters – get in touch to find out how we can help you.
