Governance & Compliance
The board of Children’s Group Link has always strived to ensure that the charity operates to the highest standards possible and in early 2015 identified the Governance Code as a tool that would help to further that aim. The Governance Code is a voluntary code and a valuable resource to assist community, voluntary and charity organisations develop their overall capacity in and encourages them to check themselves against best practice in the management of their business.
Having made the decision to begin the process to adopt the Governance Code and to move to an even higher level of compliance and accountability, a working sub-group of the board, supported by the CEO moved the process forward. The board further determined there was a need for outside professional assistance to complete the project and hired John Warren, JE Warren Consulting to work with its sub-group to put the necessary systems in place. The code was finally adopted and formally announced on November 11th 2016.
Children’s Group Link has always and continues to operate in an open accountable, responsible and transparent manner and is mindful and respectful of the trust placed in it as one of the leading charitable organisations in the country.
