Good Governance for Small Charities


It’s easy for good governance to fall to the bottom of the list of priorities when you’re running a small charity.  When you’re working or volunteering with a small charity your to-do list is long and there is often minimal time, resource and capacity to get through it.  Sometimes, the good governance basics are dropped.

This course will be run online using Zoom.

What will I learn?

In this interactive workshop Vic will talk you through the essential responsibilities of a Trustee, the foundations of good governance and how to manage the juggle of governance versus operational responsibilities. 

You’ll also get to meet and share learning with your peers through interactive activities and Q&A.
