NEW TOOLKIT TO SUPPORT THE SMALLEST OF CHARITIES ADOPT THE CHARITY GOVERNANCE CODE
We want the code to be something which can be used by every charity, regardless of size or resource. We have listened to this feedback and are pleased to announce the launch of a new toolkit as part of Small Charity Week. This toolkit is designed to support micro and small charities implement the Code’s principles.
The toolkit links directly to the Charity Governance Code. It uses the same principles but describes the kind of practice a micro organisation should aspire to implement. There are also links to lots of free tools and resources which can be used and adapted to implement the principles. Our hope is that this will make the jobs of the dedicated and committed trustees of the smallest charities easier. We are pleased to have received endorsement and support for the tool from our partners on the Code’s steering group and it’s chair, Rosie Chapman.
This toolkit is distinct from the small version of the Code. As a rule of thumb, this tool is intended for use by charities with an income of less than £100,000 per year with no paid staff.
