Welcome to the Good Governance Award

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

Evidencing good governance can be difficult, and charities are under increasing pressure to improve transparency and demonstrate their efficiency.

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.
