Event description
Charities Governance Code - Workshop for Directors of Community Services

About this Event

Community Childcare Services that are registered as charities are obliged to begin work on a Charities Governance Code. The Charities Governance Code explains the minimum standards you should meet to effectively manage and control your charity. The effect of good governance is to ensure your childcare service is managed in an effective, efficient, accountable and transparent way.

The meeting will assist Directors to:

  • To understand and fulfil the roles and obligations of Company Directors
  • To work on the documentation needed for the Charities Governance Code and to ensure this documentation reflects practice in community childcare services specifically
  • To plan for the provision of future resources and for future meetings so the Code is completed, implemented and reported upon in line with the timescale of the Charity Regulator
  • To discuss the resources available and required to achieve the above.

The above work is the responsibility of the Directors (Management Committee) with the assistance of the manager and others, such as the service accountant/auditor. Spaces at meeting are available for Directors and the manager.

Please bring to the meeting the Company Constitution and the list of registered directors to the meeting. If you cannot access these, or if you have a query please contact padraig@galwaychildcare.com
