Social enterprise launches governance self-assessment framework

Social enterprise Investing in Governance has devised a way for charities to assess and improve their governance procedures.

The 24-page document includes 69 best practice guidelines under 11 headings, which cover topics from recruitment to the induction and appraisal of trustees.

Organisations that complete the document are scored so they can identify areas for improvement.

The document was drawn up by Stefan Kuchar, chief executive of Wandsworth Voluntary Sector Development Agency, as part of an MBA research study. He worked with five charities to develop the plan, which starts with a list of "10 things that hack me off about charity boards".

It was posted online this week and is available to download for £29.50. Charities can also buy in an expert panel to help with the evaluation for £3,250.
