Good governance recognised at Gowrie Care
Achieving the Good Governance accreditation highlights Gowrie’s commitment to continually reviewing policies and procedures to ensure they are a well-run charity.
Dundee Voluntary Action developed the award and chief executive Christine Lowden said: “People need to have confidence that the charities they support are well run. Our Good Governance assessor carries out a thorough inspection of policy and practice. The four organisations who have come through in this first year are enthusiastic about improvement, and they deserve credit for their good practice.”
“The accreditation process allowed us to analyse our internal process and put improvements in place. We’re delighted to be one of the first four charities to achieve this accreditation and I would like to congratulate the other three charities who joined us on the night.”
As well as Gowrie Care, Dundee’s Lord Provost Ian Borthwick presented the nationally recognised award to Alternatives: Dundee Crisis Pregnancy Trust; Amina: Muslim Women’s Resource Centre and Tayside Council on Alcohol.
