The Charity Governance Awards is an exciting not-for-profit initiative created to celebrate outstanding governance in charities both small and large.
We all know that effective governance makes a difference. And by sharing examples of inspirational trustees and brilliant boards we want to show how great governance and doing good go hand-in-hand.
Today, third sector governance is a subject never far from the news. Yet we know that the headlines don’t tell the whole story.
That’s why our awards are exclusively dedicated to charity governance. By shining a spotlight on the best of the sector, we want to demonstrate how effective governance can transform a charity and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries.
There are seven categories covering every kind of charitable organisation. The winning charity in each category will receive £5,000.
You can also hear from representatives from each winning charity in these short videos.
