The Good Governance Health Check is a governance tool specifically designed for management committees – and their umbrella or peak bodies.

It is a Q&A checklist that guides users through the essential governance concepts, principles and activities needed to ensure a healthy and productive organisation.

The Good Governance Health Check recognises that the vast majority of incorporated Associations are small, volunteer-driven organisations, often with limited resources and in need of practical guidance to meet the challenges of the modern not-for-profit environment. It gives you a snapshot of your Association's governance status, identifies areas for improvement and provides a Toolbox full of simple tips, techniques and examples to help you on your governance journey.

The Good Governance Health Check also recognises the challenges faced by umbrella and peak bodies in providing practical assistance to their members. The Health Check will provide the insight and information needed to identify where you can best target your resources to develop the capacity of your members and in turn develop your sector.

The Good Governance Health Check comes in two formats. If you like your information to be more interactive then you should subscribe to the Good Governance App. This is an online, self-paced Health Check that you can access yourself on a computer or tablet or, even better, in discussion with your whole Committee.

If you prefer your information in hard copy, you can download the Good Governance Health Check Handbook.  The Handbook contains all the information, tips, tools and templates that you will find in the Good Governance App, but in a PDF version.
