The Principles of Good Governance for Sport and Recreation

Created 2 years ago, updated 2 years ago


The Principle of Good Goverance for Sport and Recreation is a refreshed version of the Voluntary Code, created with practical guidance and case studies, and championing those that used them successfully. Good governance isn’t about box-ticking, and it isn’t just about funded organisations.

Good governance is comparable and flexible to any size organisation - it's about:


  • taking a proactive approach to managing your organisation, identifying your goals and implementing effective strategies to achieve them
  • defining roles and relationships to help your organisation operate efficiently, and getting the right people to carry out those roles
  • making sure your members are adequately represented, that the organisation is accountable and that everyone involved acts with the highest integrity; protecting your reputation.
