Good Governance Survey - A Review of Charity Trusteeship in the UK
Nearly half of the c170,000 charities in the UK have vacancies on their boards, and 95% of people are unaware that they can support a charity by becoming a trustee.
There are an estimated 820,000 charity trustees in the UK. They are responsible for ensuring that their charities are well run and working towards their charitable aims.
Good Governance - Event Survey
The City livery company The Clothworkers’ Company is committed to assist in the development of good governance. They have been talking to their partners, Prospectus, NPC and Reach about how we can all work to “raise the bar of governance.” Their programme has been productive and successful.
We are interested in how we can continue to promote good governance via recognition, with the anchor being an awards event. There are many awards over the year recognising achievements. We are keen to acknowledge great governance and to uncover great examples to act as a beacon for others.
Before embarking on this initiative, we would like to establish from people directly involved in the sector whether the concept is valid and sustainable. We anticipate 6 – 8 categories, with awards presented at a free-to-attend event at Clothworkers’ Hall. We would not be selling tables.
We would very much appreciate your support to ensure it is fit for purpose and hope you would be able to spare 5 minutes to answer the following questions.
