Governance involves

  • providing leadership and direction for the organisation.
  • maintenance of appropriate controls - such as delegation, reporting and monitoring
  • managing risks
  • managing and planning finances
  • managing people
  • enhancing working relationships
  • positive representation of the organisation, and
  • complying with laws and legal obligations

The following governance resource materials have been designed to assist NGOs to:

  • assess their organisation’s current governance capacity and identify areas for development and improvement
  • design a specific governance development plan for themselves, incorporating in-house training and skill development
  • undertake developmental work on the areas identified to enhance and extend the capacity of their board or management committee.

You can access these materials through the links in the left hand red menu under "Governance online training".

You can also access the Community Door Introduction to governance online e-training module
