After 8 months in practice how are charities experiencing and engaging with the code? Has the code gone far enough in supporting trustees?
Putting the Charity Governance Code into practice
About this event
Governance is crucial to a charity’s success. A strong trustee board can help its charity to make the biggest possible difference to people’s lives. A weak board can put even the best charity at risk of being unable to cope in times of change.
Last year the 3rd version of the Charity Governance Code was launched—a practical and easy-to-use guide to help charities develop good boards—outlining 7 broad principles for how trustees should work. After 8 months in practice how are charities experiencing and engaging with the code? Has the code gone far enough in supporting trustees?
This seminar, in partnership with the Clothworkers’ Company, will explore what the Code and the research finding mean in practice for trustees. It will be an opportunity for you to hear the experiences of organisations putting the code into practice as well offering a chance to discuss how to overcome the practice challenges of implementing the code.
It will also touch on the Cass Business School research, Taken on trust. The awareness and effectiveness of charity trustees in England and Wales, into contemporary trustees and their understanding of their roles and responsibilities.
The event will be chaired by Dan Corry, Chief Executive of NPC and speakers will include:
- Gail Scott-Spicer, Deputy Chair, Money Advice Trust
- Christine Fogg, Trustee, Royal Free Charity
- Craig Beeston, Policy Officer, ICSA
