Training on Governance

Good governance is very important for community, voluntary and other charitable organisations. Your governing body- whether it is called a management committee, board of trustees, or board of directors- is responsible for ensuring that your organisation delivers its objectives, is well managed and serves its community and service users. It is responsible for ensuring that resources are appropriately used and funds accounted for, that staff/volunteers are properly managed and work within the law.

This training session aims to help you to ensure that you have the knowledge and skills necessary for you to meet your legal responsibilities and to be a successful member of your organisation’s board of trustees.

By the end of this session you will:

  • Have a good understanding of how the voluntary sector works, its role and its capacity.
  • Have a good understanding of the legal status of your organisation
