What is the Governance Code?
The Governance Code is a resource to assist community, voluntary and charitable (CVC) organisations to develop their overall capacity in terms of how they run their organisation. It is a voluntary code available to all boards/committees/ executives of not-for-profit groups to encourage them to check themselves against best practice in the management of their affairs.
The Code has been developed by people with extensive experience in the CVC sector and it takes account of the different types of organisations which exist in the diverse world of volunteering across the country.
