Good Governance – A code for the voluntary and community sector: smaller organisation version – ACEVO – Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations – 1 November 2011

“Smaller charitable organisations will welcome the publication of a new governance code today during Trustees’ Week.

‘Good Governance – A code for the voluntary and community sector: smaller organisation version’ is designed to complement Good Governance: a Code for the Voluntary and Community sector and provides a framework for smaller organisations to govern in a way that is appropriate to their size.

This version of the code has been written to meet the needs of smaller organisations without staff. As organisations grow and take on staff or premises, additional considerations and rules come into play. Growth may also mean that more formal structures and practices become necessary. It builds on the success of the second edition of Good Governance: A code for the voluntary and community sector and is designed to be clearer and easier to use for those organisations with limited resources, while mirroring the principles of the main code. Supporting the smaller organisation code is a glossary to explain some of the more legalistic and technical jargon.

The initial work on this new version was carried out by a working group made up of representatives from the Small Charities Coalition, Richmond upon Thames Council for Voluntary Service, Community Sector Coalition, Community Matters and the Faith Based Regeneration Network.”
