The judging panel comprises trustees, leaders and experts from the voluntary sector.
The Charity Governance Awards will be judged in a two-stage process. After an initial review of the long-list, our judges will select a shortlist of chosen charities with outstanding examples of governance. Those shortlisted will be informed in Spring 2017, with the winners announced at the award ceremony drinks reception on 24th May 2017 in London.
Each of the seven awards have listed questions and the responses will be judged against a points system. Entrants are asked to answer these questions as part of the online entry form.
Conflict of interest
There are no barriers to entry for any charity (as long as it meets the criteria) should it have a relationship with a judge. Before the judging process commences, all judges will be asked to declare any conflicts of interest with the entries being considered, and these will be managed accordingly during judging.
