Now that the Charity Commission has its powers of investigation and enforcement, what does this mean in practice for charities on the ground?
The Developing Governance Group in association with the Charity Commission and local support networks would like to invite you to a free seminar focusing on the new rules and regulations that have come into being from the Charities Act (NI) 2008.
This seminars will also focus on the importance of good governance within charities, and will outline how the Code of Good Governance Health Check can be used to help improve governance in organisations of any size or nature.
