The Charity Governance Awards is an exciting not-for-profit initiative created to celebrate outstanding governance in charities both small and large.

We all know that effective governance makes a difference. And by sharing examples of inspirational trustees and brilliant boards we want to show how great governance and doing good go hand-in-hand.

Today, third sector governance is a subject never far from the news. Yet we know that the headlines don’t tell the whole story. That’s why our awards are exclusively dedicated to charity governance. By shining a spotlight on the best of the sector, we want to demonstrate how effective governance can transform a charity and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries.

There are seven categories covering every kind of charitable organisation. Shortlisted charities will be invited to an exclusive Awards Ceremony and Reception where the winners will be announce. The winning charity in each category will receive £5,000.
