Last week saw the launch of a website promoting two codes of good governance: ‘Good Governance - A code for the voluntary and community sector’, and a second version aimed specifically at smaller organisations.
ACEVO worked with other sector umbrella bodies to develop the Codes, which provide a set of practical principles showing how an effective board can provide good governance and leadership.
The website is an easily accessible, single location of the essentials any third sector organisation needs to begin its journey, or refresh and improve its approach, towards good governance. The website hosts supporting tools and resources to turn the theory of good governance into practice and useful case studies bring to life the transformative impact of using the Code.
ACEVO’s last Pay Survey found that 74% of chief executives use the Code in their own organisations- so if you haven’t used it yet, log on to www.governancecode.org and try it out!
