WCVA Guide – Good governance: a code for the third sector in Wales
Charities and voluntary organisations have the power to transform the lives of people and communities for the better.
They exist in various shapes and sizes, but whatever the cause or the scale of the project they are all run by people who carry a great deal of responsibility. Not only do those trustees and board members have a responsibility to manage their organisations effectively so that objectives can be achieved, they also have a responsibility to act in a way that promotes and facilitates increased public trust.
Good practice in governance has never been more important than it is now, as difficult financial times and continued changes within the voluntary sector mean that it is vital for trustees and board members to embrace the values of good governance and apply them practically to their specific organisation.
This second edition of Good governance: a code for the third sector in Wales has, like the first edition, been drafted by the sector for the sector. It is now more accessible to smaller, volunteer run organisations and to less experienced boards, and sets out clear common standards that all charities should aspire to achieve.
