The Charity Governance Awards is an exciting not-for-profit initiative created to celebrate outstanding governance in charities both small and large.
NPC has worked with the Clothworkers’ Company over many years to support and promote good governance, something, which is critical to our mission of improving charities’ impact.
The awards shines a spotlight on the best good governance across the sector. It demonstrates how effective governance can transform a charity and the lives of its beneficiaries.
We are proud to sponsor the award’s three Improving Impact categories:
- Improving Impact: charities with 3 paid staff or fewer (including charities with no paid staff).
- Improving Impact: charities with 4–25 paid staff.
- Improving impact: charities with 26 paid staff or more.
