Improving charity boardroom behaviours

Good governance, in any organisation, is more than having the right policies, procedures and protocols in place. While these factors are important, they are ineffective if the people responsible for leading the organisation are ignorant of them, or unable or unwilling to adhere to them. It is essential that trustees understand their legal duties, abide by the charity’s governing document and act in accordance with the Nolan principles.

This guidance note provides examples of positive behaviours that should help trustees to make constructive challenge and good decisions that further the charitable objects and lead to positive changes.
