Governance

Good governance is vital.  It comes from having a structure that lets you make effective decisions, in an organised and accountable way and positively influences how you are perceived by others. It is an essential requirement for funding applications.

Effective governance:

  • Ensures you have a decision making structure
  • Defines your roles and responsibilities within that structure
  • Helps you understand your legal responsibilities
  • Provides a framework for managing written documentation and records
  • Helps to define who you can help and how to provide the best help possible
  • Ensures accountability
  • Helps you to be seen as a trustworthy organisaton
