Launch of Leadership and Good Governance Awards 2017

Launch of Leadership and Good Governance Awards 2017

This week marks the launch of the Leadership and Good Governance Awards 2017. The Awards are organised by the VSB Foundation in partnership with CO3 and Volunteer Now.  They recognise voluntary organisations, which are working hard to improve their governance. This year there will be two awards, one for organisations with an income of less than £500,000 and another for organisations with an income of over £500,000.  We would like to build on the success of last year’s awards and encourage organisations to apply for the awards before Friday 22 September.

Wendy Osborne, OBE, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now explained “Leadership and Good Governance is key to what steers an organisation in the right path. The different components of the organisation do not function correctly without leadership and ensuring procedures are followed is good governance. It is great to see organisations recognising the need for Leadership and Good Governance in delivering high quality services”.

Duane Farrell, Chair of the Rainbow Project, winners of the 2016 award said, “We were delighted to win this award as it recognises the focus we have put on continuously improving our governance in The Rainbow Project so that we can better meet the needs of those people we work with and for”.

Nora Smith, CEO, CO3 commented “The Awards have proven to be a huge success. It has provided a platform to showcase the strong leadership of Boards within our sector. It is so important that we highlight good practice, learning and sharing from one another.”
