To continue to hold the public’s trust, charities require good corporate governance, which means effective boards.

The 2012 research study conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of the Charity Commission on trust and confidence in charities shows that, since 2005, levels of trust and confidence have held up and even increased slightly and that charities are amongst the most trusted groups in society, with only doctors and the police being seen as more trusted.

There are four key components of an effective board:

  • Size, composition, skills and experience
  • Training and development
  • Effective meetings
  • Board evaluations
