Governance: Tools for success

documentcircleCentre for Charities Effectiveness produced this Guide to Governance as part of their much larger Tools for Success series of guides. It is aimed at small Charities and Voluntary and Community organisations. It identifies 5 key areas that Boards should address to ensure they are Governing aswell as they can:
  1. Reviewing general performance (including strategy and finances)
  2. Board composition, skills and development
  3. Boundaries and Board delegation
  4. Effective decision-making and accountability
  5. Risk management

For each of these areas the guides not only explains what the Charity should be doing as a minimum, but also signposts to websites where further inforamtion, support and advice can be obtained.
