Governance wheel

This page is free to all
A tool to measure and develop your governance and leadership

The governance wheel is a simple tool that helps boards of voluntary organisations quickly get a sense of how well they’re functioning and fulfilling their roles.

Completing it will give you an instant visual impression of the shape that your board is in.

The governance wheel links to the Charity Governance Code and can be used as a starting point for reviews based on the Code.
