The Good Governance Award has been developed to support and celebrate governance best practice, recognising the importance of good management to the efficacy and efficiency of an organisation.
In order to obtain the award, organisations begin by going through a process of self-evaluation before compiling a portfolio evidencing 7 key areas of organisational governance. These are:
- Organisational Management
- Planning, Delivering, & Monitoring
- Managing Staff & Volunteers
- Managing Finances
- Managing Resources
- Marketing & Communications
Registered organisations are fully supported throughout the process, with regular one-to-one meetings with Good Governance Award staff, as well as access to resources for each section of the award through the members' area of this site.
