KCSC has worked with numerous stakeholders to develop a Charter for Public Participation in response to the Council’s request for responses to their recent six-month Borough and Area Governance Review.
Whether you’re motivated by a desire to address injustice, have identified an unmet need or just want to give something back to the community, building a new organisation involves a lot of hard work. But the results can be incredibly worthwhile and fulfilling.
Here are a few things to consider before setting up a new organisation:
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.
KCSC has engaged with RBKC’s Governance Review since its inception. Prior to this, we have worked in partnership with the Volunteer Centre Kensington and Chelsea to support the Centre for Public Scrutiny and Democracy Society to engage with local people and the voluntary and community sector in its review of the RBKC’s governance and decision-making structures. We have facilitated discussions through KCSC’s Grenfell Network Group meetings, submitted collective responses as the review has progressed, and attended and contributed to the Panel’s open meetings.
Good governance in charities is fundamental to their success. It enables and supports a charity’s compliance with the law and relevant regulations. It also promotes a culture where everything works towards fulfilling the charity’s vision.
