The Governance Forum

Welcome to the governance forum

The governance forum has developed a robust procedure of diagnostic assessment, planning and actions. Organisations that follow this process will benefit from its comprehensive and practical applications.

Sir Adrian Cadbury – Cadbury Code

The forum’s diagnostic process and its experience of working with a range of agencies should offer both the methodology and the understanding to provide a clear analysis of an organisation’s performance.

Roger De La Mare, Assistant Director Risk and Assurance – Tenant Services Authority

This process of assessment is both thorough and unique in its three tier approach. Organisations will receive practical benefits from going through a process such as this which can help to improve overall performance.

Dr Mirza Ahmad, Corporate Director of Governance - Birmingham City Council

The social housing sector is very diverse and each board is at a different stage in its development. This comprehensive and transparent diagnostic process, identifies priorities for governance improvement in a realistic and focused way.

Patricia McCabe, Managing Director - Central Consultancy and Training

BVSC sees excellence in governance as essential to the successful work of any organisation in the third sector. We have recently evaluated the Governance Assessment Process (GAP) by applying it ourselves, and found it extremely beneficial.
