Webinar: An introduction to the Charity Governance Code

Our Better Boards online training programme has been developed to support the Hertfordshire voluntary sector to ensure good governance during COVID-19 and beyond.

An introduction to the Charity Governance Code
Tuesday 30 June 10.00am -12.00pm

Many charities will be adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and good governance will be crucial in responding to the crisis. During these uncertain times, strong leadership will be vital in ensuring sustainability for local organisations.

Good Governance during COVID-19 and beyond is a series of webinars under our Better Boards programme, to improve the effectiveness of Hertfordshire’s voluntary sector, to help aid response & recovery during COVID-19. If a charity is well run, they will be more likely to meet the growing demand for services in Hertfordshire.
