Post Covid-19 Governance Support for Richmond Groups

In 2022, we delivered a programme funded by RPLC.  It had a number of elements including training, networking and peer support opportunities plus tailored in-depth 1:1 governance support. The support was based on each organisation’s needs and potential impact.  The support was provided on the basis of helping organisations taking responsibility for assessing and improving their own governance effectiveness.  It did not constitute legal advice.

Reporting Serious Incidents

Trustees are responsible for reporting serious incidents - this briefing provides a simple guide.
