How good is your governance?

This is a question that trustees should be considering as part of their role on the board.  

A useful tool which can help the board to determine this is the Governance Healthcheck which follows the five key principles of the Code of Good Governance.  It is a questionnaire focusing on different aspects of governance in an organisation including suggested evidence and space for identifying actions.

NICVA’s governance and charity advice service is also on hand to answer your governance and charity regulation queries or review your governing documents. We can also deliver bespoke governance training for your board which can help you to determine how effective your board is.
