Good Governance FB Cover (1)

Good Governance in charities is fundamental to their success. It enables and supports a charity’s compliance with the law and relevant regulations. It also promotes a culture where everything works towards fulfilling the charity’s vision.

We know that it can be a huge job keeping up with all the latest best practice around regulation and compliance so thanks to funding from MK Community Foundation, we have developed a self assessment tool based on the Charity Code of Governance that you can use whether you are a charity or community group, large or small or anything in between!

The tool is a relatively quick and easy online form for your board or committee to assess how you are performing in regards to the seven key principles of Good Governance.

After completing the form, Community Action: MK will tailor advice and resources for you to use to improve your score. 

We are also able to promote your trustee and committee member roles via our volunteering platform.

If you require more substantial support, we are happy to talk to you about a bespoke package of support. Please email us.


There are 25 questions in total and the self -assessment will take approx 15-30 minutes. The form cannot be saved as you go so please make sure you give yourself enough time to complete it.
