Managing Turnaround category

This award is for a board that has directly contributed to the positive change in a charity’s future by taking it from a low point, with an uncertain future, to one where it now has upward momentum, based on a clear strategy and sustainable plan. This award is not just limited to financial turnarounds: it could, for example, be about turning around reputation, strategic drift or loss of engagement by key stakeholders.

What the judges are looking for

The judges are looking for evidence of turnarounds that are sustainable in the long-run, so that the charity is better placed to achieve its mission and strategic goals, and meet the needs of its beneficiaries more effectively whilst adhering to its values.

The entry must focus on the work of the main board, but if any sub-committees or other governance groups outside the main board made a contribution, you are welcome to tell us about that in your response.
