Having good governance systems in place will help you deliver your services more effectively. Board members and trustees should be aware of their responsibilities and good practice in relation to governance of a voluntary sector group, organisation or charity.

If you are a new or developing group and/or are looking to become established, we can provide advice about the different governance options. Please email
