Welcome to the Good Governance Award and Introduction to Good Governance Programme

The Good Governance Award is the quality standard for Scottish charities.

The Award provides a clear, structured approach to assessing and improving a charity’s policies and procedures. Once completed, it provides proof that an organisation is actively engaging in excellent governance through our Award Certification.

The Introduction to Good Governance Programme has been developed to support small charities strengthen their core governance, and is a great precursor to the full Good Governance Award.
