Launch of the Revised Code of Good Governance

Primary tabs

2 November 2021 -
4:00pm to 5:00pm

Nicole Lappin, Chief Charity Commissioner will officially launch the 3rd edition of the Code of Good Governance for the voluntary and community sector at this special seminar for Trustees Week.

The Code of Good Governance is a voluntary set of standards on good governance practice for the boards of voluntary and community organisations produced by the Developing Governance Group.  The pocket-sized booklet of earlier editions of the Code has been widely distributed to all types of boards in the sector. 

This latest edition of the Code, which was consulted on in late 2019, has been revised to make the principles clearer and includes more recommended practice within the principles to help Trustees see the expected standards more easily.

In this seminar, the Developing Governance Group secretariat Denise Hayward, Volunteer Now and Denise Copeland, NICVA will introduce you to the new principles in the Code and suggest ways in which Trustees can use it to review, maintain or improve governance within their own organisations.

Thanks to funding from the Halifax Foundation for Northern Ireland, the Developing Governance Group will republish the revised Code of Good Governance in booklet form and will redevelop the DIY Committee Guide website along with a revised healthcheck which should be launched next year.
