Welcome to our monthly governance round-up. This month we look at the latest guidance from the Charity Commission and share recent governance news and events.
BoardLead connects charities with qualified, skilled, and mission-driven trustee candidates. It’s a free service for charities based in the Greater London area.
BoardLead has successfully placed more than 2,500 professionals on over 1,100 boards across the United States and the Greater London area. As well as introducing you to talented professionals, BoardLead also vets potential trustees to check they’re the right fit for your organisation.
Candidates get access to governance training so they can make a big impact from day one.
BoardLead is a partnership between Cause Strategy Partners, Trustees Unlimited, and NCVO.
