Enhancing governance, strengthening community organisations
We support community organisations to improve governance practices through a program linking them with recognised community leaders. These community leaders act as mentors by offering their experience to improve financial and social outcomes.
Mentors work with the whole committee or board, not individual participants. By specifically improving overall governance in an advisory capacity, they help empower the committee to develop good policies and processes that facilitate good governance. Mentors undergo a thorough screening and training process before they are placed with an organisation over a 12-month period.
Organisations that undertake mentoring report improved confidence in governance overall, greater commitment, a sense of optimism, enhanced teamwork, clarity around roles and responsibilities, and deeper mutual respect.
