Good governance in charities directly leads to its success – whilst ensuring that it is not only compliant with regulations and code, it’s also a guide to meeting the goals and vision of the charity.

However, governance can be tricky to get right: are you covering all your bases?

The Charity Governance Online Certificate has been designed to explore best practice for effectively leading a charity, looking at how to overcome challenges and drive a sustainable future.

This training will also look at how you can develop and improve your charity governance practices as you grow and reach your goals, such as reviewing and amending governance documents, handling disputes and how to amend governing documents in line with charity law.

The fully online course will provide a comprehensive review of governance, incorporating all elements laid out by the charity code, but also using expert advice from our trainer on how to practically implement this into your charity.
