Why is having good governance so important?

Voluntary organisations exist to have a positive impact on the communities they serve. Having a confident, diverse & skilled board that provides good governance is crucial for any organisation to fulfil its purpose.

Having good governance provides direction and supervision, whilst ensuring effectiveness and accountability for an organisation.

Direction. If you know where you’re going it’s much easier to get there.  The board should have the capacity to set the strategy and overall direction; providing leadership for everyone in the organisation.
