The Winifred Tumim Memorial Prize for best practice in charity governance has been established by NCVO in honour of the work done by Lady Winifred Tumim, chair of NCVO from 1996-2001, to improve the quality of charity governance.

All shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend the NCVO/BWB Trustee Conference on Monday 5 November 2018 free of charge where the winners will be announced at the evening drinks reception.
