With around 170,000 registered charities in England and Wales, and countless smaller charities which are unregistered, together operating across many diverse spheres of activity, charities play an important part in the social fabric of this country and the economy as a whole. It is important that these organisations are properly run, but the demands on volunteer trustees are such that good governance is often difficult to achieve.
The Charity Governance Code, published in 2017 with the approval of the Charity Commission and the support of six leading organisations in the charity world, seeks to provide a framework for the good governance of charities with guidance to support the operation of each of its seven stated Principles.
This webinar will provide:
a detailed examination of each of the principles of the Charity Governance Code and the rationale for each principle
an explanation of the published guidance (recommended practice) supporting the principles, showing how each principle is intended to be implemented
an explanation of the application of the Charity Governance Code to charities both large and small, and the overall flexibility of its operation
an account of the ways in which adoption of the Charity Governance Code can benefit the charity itself, its beneficiaries and those who work in it, as well as support its fundraising activities and other dealings with stakeholders
