What is Shaping Governance®?

Shaping Governance® is our multi-award-winning governance improvement toolkit, that makes an immediate improvement to charity governance. It's highly interactive; ensuring that all trustees get a chance to learn, contribute, and enhance their effectiveness.

How does Shaping Governance improve governance?

Shaping Governance® sessions support Trustees and Senior Officers to work together to:


  • Improve teamwork within the Board and across the charity;

  • Enhance knowledge of all Trustees - on their roles and responsibilities and also their school;

  • Help their board to adopt a learning culture using the Shaping Governance® tool;

  • Be sighted on the improvements needed and create their own improvement plan, embedding this for the future;

It helps Boards to explore and learn about areas of governance that are often overlooked or neglected.
