The Charity Commission has published a new guide to governance for faith-based charities to help them establish strong trustee bodies and good practice. The guide, Faith in Good Governance, was launched to coincide with National Inter Faith Week (15-21 November 2009).
The publication is aimed at the trustees, staff and volunteers of those charities established with a religious purpose whose main focus is religious worship and related activities. It brings together into one document aspects of the legal and good practice framework which are most likely to be of relevance to faith-based charities. The guidance is aimed predominantly at smaller or newer charities whose main focus is operating a place of worship.
