Guide to the Governance Code 2012 (for community and voluntary organisations) - Updated October 2016

The Governance Code for community and voluntary organisations is a voluntary code of practice for good governance of community, voluntary and charitable organisations in Ireland.

The Code was established by a working group of eight community, voluntary and charity organisations and has been developed to serve the entire sector, regardless of size, with three broad organisational types accommodated within the Code. 

The Code was published in March 2012 and updated in October 2016.
