Trustees and governance

KCSC's current trustees are as follows:

Strategic planning

What?  Strategic planning means analysing your past and present situation, and thinking ahead to develop a project or an organisation. In other words: where you are now, where you want to be, and how you are going to get there.

Why? Not only to secure the survival of your organisation or project, but also to ensure it reaches its full potential.

Quality systems

What is 'quality' in the voluntary sector?

'Quality is essentially about learning what you are doing well and doing it better. It also means finding out what you may need to change to make sure you meet the needs of your service users.' (Charities Evaluation Service)

Building a new organisation

PQASSO is a 'quality assurance' system that involves working systematically through 12 areas of running an organisation - such as governance, user involvement, finance, volunteering - and deciding how well you meet various criteria.

You then make an action plan for updating any policies or practices that will help you run your organisation more effectively.

Once you have completed these actions, you can say that you have achieved PQASSO at level 1, level 2 or level 3.

Who is PQASSO aimed at?
