What was the Governance Code?
The Governance Code is a Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland. Governance refers to how an organisation is run, directed and controlled.
The Governance Code was formally retired on Monday July 8th 2019. All charities are now steered towards the Charities Regulator’s Governance Code.
Finglas Addiction Support Team believe that all organisations have a responsibility to provide and follow a code of good practice when it comes to how their organisations are run. Ensuring compliance with the the Charities governance code is our way of letting all our stakeholders know that we are committed to operating in this way – with good leadership, appropriate controls, accountability, effective work practices and Integrity.
