Implementing the Regulator's Charities Governance Code (Online Workshop)

2018 saw the launch of the Charities Regulator's new Charities Governance Code. 2019 was the year in which Irish charities were expected to start preparing for the Code. 2020 is the deadline for compliance with the Code, while 2021 is when registered charities are expected to start reporting on that compliance.

We know the unprecedented pressure charities are currently finding themselves under. And so we have developed an engaging and interactive online workshop which will give you the knowledge and tools you need to implement the Code in your organisation within the stated deadline 

Alongside an overview of the new Code, this training will explore the practices of good governance, identify strategies to help you apply these in your organisation and ensure that you are prepared to implement the new Code’s requirements.

Learning Outcomes

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand the organisational role played by trustees
  • Outline the essential elements of good governance for nonprofits
  • Identify the key legal duties of charity trustees
  • Outline the Charities Regulator's Governance Code requirements
  • Apply the Code in their organisations.
How to register

Once you are registered for the workshop, we'll be in touch with you the week beforehand to give you details of how to join our online classroom.
