Governance & Leadership


Good governance happens when charities have practices and procedures in place that help them to deliver their work effectively and transparently, and when the roles and responsibilities of people in the charity are clearly understood, including directors, staff, volunteers and members. 

We believe good governance involves maintaining strong relationships between the members of our governing body and stakeholders, and is much more about working as a collective than individual responsibilities.
