The Charity Governance Award Winners 2019

As a proud key partner in the Charity Governance Awards, we are pleased to announce the 2019 winners.

Now in its fourth year, the awards are organised and funded by The Clothworkers’ Company, a City Livery company that supports trusteeship initiatives, and supported by New Philanthropy Capital, Reach and Prospectus. The awards shine a spotlight on great charity governance and evidence how effective governance can transform a charity, and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries. 

This year saw a high standard of entries from charities of all sizes from across the UK. Winners included charities working in arts, culture, community development, education, health and more. Congratulations to all the winners and those that were shortlisted.
