Governance is about the oversight required to ensure that an organisation is being run properly. This responsibility usually sits with a Board or Executive Committee, which is appointed for this purpose.

In general, the Board or Executive Committee will be responsible for:

  • Ensuring the organisation meets it's legal obligations

  • Ensuring the finances of the organisation are accounted for

  • Being a good employer to any staff

  • Setting the strategic goals and direction of the organisation 


We have put together some resources to help answer some of the most commonly asked questions about governance responsibilities.
