Insights from the boards of larger charities
Published by Compass Partnership
in association with CASS Business School
Over 750,000 people in the UK work for charities and over 500,000 people govern them as charity trustees.
Over the last two decades increasing attention has been given to developing the governing boards of charities.
Trustees want to make the best use of their time and the Charity Commissions encourage charity boards to review their performance periodically.
While there have been pointers to what constitutes good governance, there has been little empirical evidence. Delivering Effective Governance puts this right.
Leading governance consultants, Compass Partnership, working with the Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School, have surveyed over 200 of the country’s largest charities and identified the key drivers of effective governance.
Now boards and managers can use these empirical findings to focus their efforts on the characteristics of governance that deliver results.
‘This work demonstrates the value of evidence based research and sheds new light on actions trustees need to take to strengthen governance.’
