This guide aims to improve your understanding and help you strengthen the governance structures of Scottish charities working internationally. It is an introductory toolkit that offers support to trustees around the basics of governance, finance, people and wider organisational responsibilities such as safeguarding and risk mitigation. It also signposts where you can find further resources.

You can read a summary of SCVO’s three governance top tips on their blog if you haven’t got time to read the whole report, or you can download each of the sections separately below, including the annexes which comprise a template register for conflicts of interest and a guide to comparing and choosing an organisational structure.

For more information about the topic and to assess how good your governance is in practice, watch our webinar with Tracey Bird from SCVO about SCVO’s recently released governance check-up.
