Two webinars have been organised to offer an opportunity to people who could not attend our listening events to share their views. The webinars will include an expert panel, live discussions and an opportunity to ask questions.

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.

We believe this service will be reshaped over the next year and anticipate a new service being awarded, to be delivered from September 2020. It’s not yet clear which funders will be investing in the service in the future, but we do understand the county council we continue to invest in a service.
