Leadership & Good Governance Awards 2021

This past year has provided many challenges! The Leadership and Good Governance Awards 2021 provides an opportunity to shine a light on the many Trustees in Northern Ireland who have given their time freely to ensure that good governance and leadership has been continuing during the pandemic.

The Leadership and Good Governance Awards, organised by VSB Foundation in partnership with Volunteer Now and CO3, focus on charity boards and trustees.   These awards have grown in profile during the past five years and celebrate voluntary organisations which are working hard to improve their governance.  The winner in each of the three categories will be awarded £1,000 to support the governance in their organisation.

The three award categories are determined by organisational turnover and organisations should apply before noon on Friday 30 April 2021. 

Denise Hayward, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now explained

“Volunteer Now is pleased to be supporting the Leadership and Good Governance Awards again this year.  These awards provide an opportunity to celebrate the great work going on in governance which underpins the delivery for so many beneficiaries.  It is more important than ever to recognise Trustees in what has been an exceptionally challenging year.”

Nora Smith, CEO, CO3 commented

“It is so important to highlight and recognize who is leading the way on good governance and the Good Governance Awards are a fantastic platform to do just that.  In addition, for every nomination received two members from their board get complimentary membership to the CO3 Trustee Network for one year.  This is our way of offering support and development opportunities for Trustees and Boards”.
