Research on N Ireland sector governance

Northern Ireland’s VolunteerNow has published a comprehensive research report into the governance of the voluntary and community sector, which was commissioned to focus on the needs and issues facing management committee members, charity trustees etc.

In launching the report Volunteer Now’s CEO said:

“Over 33,000 individuals volunteer their time to be involved as committee members with voluntary and community groups and organisations.   The difficulty in finding new volunteers and no change in the diversity of these committees suggests we are moving towards a recruitment crisis.  This research highlights that attention needs to be given now to support good governance for the voluntary and community sector in Northern Ireland.”
