The Governance Code is a resource that maps the practice of good governance by community, voluntary and charitable organisations in Ireland. It was developed by the sector for the sector in 2012 and was updated in 2016. It is a practical resource to aid community and voluntary organisations to embark “on the journey” of good governance so as to assist them in achieving their goals with more confidence.
