The Charity Governance Awards is an exciting not-for-profit initiative created to celebrate outstanding governance in charities both small and large.
The awards celebrate how effective governance makes a difference and by sharing examples of inspirational trustees and brilliant boards they show how great governance and doing good go hand-in-hand.
The awards are exclusively dedicated to charity governance. By shining a spotlight on the best of the sector, they demonstrate how effective governance can transform a charity and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries.
The Awards are organised by The Clothworkers’ Company – a City of London Livery Company that supports trusteeship initiatives – partnering with not-for-profit consultancy NPC (New Philanthropy Capital), volunteer matching charity Reach Volunteering, and recruitment specialists Prospectus.
