     Tip of the month

This months tip is a answer to a question we often get asked. 

Q. What ever happened to the Governance Code? 
A. The Governance Code ceased to operate this summer. It has been replaced by two codes: 

1. The Charities Regulator Governance Code

2. The Governance Code for sporting organisations

More here: https://bit.ly/2jZ0Dhs (new website dealing with Governance coming in November)  

 

For groups who are neither sporting nor charities the advice is to adopt the Charities Regulator Governance Code.
