The Charity Governance Code was updated in 2020 following an extensive consultation period with the view of increasing our Sectors understanding of good governance and its stakeholders’ expectations, as we know these change over time.
The refresh to the Code reflects feedback that the steering group must strike a balance between continually updating the Code and potentially disrupting embedding the Code’s use. The enhancements focus on Principle 3: Integrity and Principle 6: Diversity, now called Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. These were the principles that received the most consistent feedback in the consultation as the areas where change was required.
