Good Governance and Charity reporting

12 Feb 2018 Denise Copeland    Last updated: 12 Feb 2018

Almost 6,000 charities are now registered with the Charity Commission for Northern Ireland and as such, must adhere to the reporting requirements for all registered charities. 

Unfortunately, not all charities are aware of the requirement to submit an annual monitoring return, annual accounts and a trustee’s report to the Commission within a specified time. 

The Developing Governance Group in association with the Charity Commission and local support networks would like to invite you to a free seminar focusing on the annual reporting requirements.  The session will also look at the Charity Commission’s new guidance on fundraising and data protection. 

This seminar will also focus on the importance of good governance and present how the newly revised Governance Health Check can be used to help charities adhere to regulations and good practice.   

This seminar will take place in six different venues across Northern Ireland in conjunction with local support networks.  The first three sessions have been arranged as follows:
