Good Governance – a code for the Voluntary and Community Sector is just what it says: a code of governance written by voluntary organisations for voluntary organisations. The Code was first published in 2005, in response to demand from the sector. It was written by representatives of the Founding Group with support from the Charity Commission. It was championed and promoted by the Governance Hub. The second edition of the Code was published in 2010, following wide consultation with the sector. It aims for a code that is more accessible to a wider range of organisations, clearer key principles, a focus on delivering the mission, a proportionate and adaptable approach, an understanding of people and their roles as well as policies and systems.
