Why should our organisation adopt the Governance Code?

Wood Street First adopted the new Governance Code because it is the right thing to do.  In doing so we can show that all the correct procedures and principles are in place to enable us to operate a well-run, organised group that takes seriously best practice in all that we do.

These policies have been constructed in consultation with the following organisations:
WFC –  Waltham Forest Council,
NCVO –  The National Council for Voluntary Organisation,
NAVCA – National Association for Voluntary and Community Action.
