Good Governance Awards Launched

19 August 2016

The VSB Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of the first Good Governance Awards for Northern Ireland.

Delivered in partnership with Volunteer Now, CO3 and the Developing Governance Group, the Good Governance Awards will shine a light on the amazing work that Trustees and Boards do.

The Awards have been established as a result of a key recommendation in the Giving Leadership, Giving Time research published in December 2015 by the VSB Foundation and Volunteer Now.

The Good Governance Awards will showcase how good governance and driving social change are essentially interlinked and will provide an opportunity to celebrate what is best in the sector.

This is your opportunity to raise the profile of your board and be awarded 1000 to further invest into your governance development.

We will be presenting the Awards on 21 November 2016 at a special event in Stormont to which all nominees will be invited.

Criteria

The awards are open to organisation:

  • With an income of less than 500,000 per annum.
  • Who fit within the definition of an organisation working within the Third Sector i.e. voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations.
  • The nomination process is for the whole board and not for one particular individual as good governance is a collective responsibility.
  • Closing date for nominations is Wednesday 12 October 2016 at 4.00pm.
