NEW Charities Governance Code

This course is fully booked.

Target Audience

 Trustees, Chairs, CEOs, and those responsible for governance in their Charity.


The NEW Charities Governance Code explains the minimum standards you should meet to effectively manage and control your charity. This workshop will walk you through the requirements of the code including actions and evidence needed to demonstrate compliance. If your organisation has already started or completed the Governance Code for Community, Voluntary and Charitable organisations, it will help you to use the evidence you already have to comply with the new Charities Governance Code.
