The revised Governance Health Check has been launched by the Developing Governance Group at a special online seminar.  If you missed the seminar on 9 June, you can watch the recording below and download the Health Check attached. 

The 3rd edition of the Code of Good Governance was launched last November with the promise of the accompanying resources to be revised. The members of the Developing Governance Group have been working over the last six months on revising the Governance Health Check which was launched at this seminar.

The Governance Health Check is a self assessment questionnaire which has been devised as a practical resource to assist board / committee members and those that work with voluntary-led boards to work towards adhering to the principles of the Code of Good Governance.  

The aim of this Health Check is to help committees / boards to review their governance arrangements, check that they have appropriate systems in place and identify areas where they could improve. It is a best practice tool which can also help organisations of any size to demonstrate their good governance practices to their stakeholders, beneficiaries and funders alike.
