The Leadership and Good Governance Awards, organised by VSB Foundation in partnership with CO3, Investec and Volunteer Now celebrate voluntary organisations which are working hard to improve their governance.
At the Awards Ceremony in Stormont, Denise Hayward, Chief Executive, Volunteer Now said: “Congratulations to all three organisations on winning this year’s Leadership and Good Governance Awards within their categories: Action Mental Health (Large Organisation), Parenting NI (Medium Organisation) and R Space Gallery (Small Organisation). It is great to see organisations recognising the need for Leadership and Good Governance in delivering high quality services. Good governance underpins all we do in Charities in Northern Ireland so well done to all the nominees.”
Nora Smith, CEO, CO3 commented “The Governance and Leadership Awards have substantially grown in profile. Now in their 3rd year this is the perfect platform to recognise and reward leadership and good governance at Board level. We all know that charity governance makes a huge difference and by sharing examples of truly inspirational boards through these Awards it is fantastic recognition of their leadership, commitment and hard work. By shining a spotlight on the best of the sector, we can demonstrate how effective governance can transform a charity and even more of the lives of its beneficiaries.”
Robert is delighted with this award and wishes to thanks the R-Space Team, fantastic Board of trustees and Volunteer Now for their recognition. "From hosting the first ever Linen Biennale to becoming registered as a Charity, R-Space has had an incredibly exciting year of growth. This award underpins the efforts we have made this year and as such, we hope to strengthen and develop our services throughout 2019 and beyond".
