A Guide to Good Governance in Sport and Activity Organisations

Governance Sport and Activity

Good governance helps organisations work effectively. It helps them meet the needs of their people and be sustainable.

Sport England Club Matters produced a guide to good governance.

The guide includes:

  • What is governance, and how can we make it “good”?
  • Who is responsible for governance?
  • What sort of benefits can good governance bring?

The guide then explores five key principles to help organisations achieve good governance:

  • Structure.
  • People.
  • Communication.
  • Standards and conduct.
  • Policies and procedures.
