    Good governance matters because it underpins successful organisations. It matters in all sectors, but especially in the voluntary and third sector, where the purpose is to serve people, causes and communities as best we can. A good reputation takes years to build and seconds to destroy. Our effectiveness relies on good governance, which is the best way to protect and improve the reputation of individual organisations and our sector as a whole.

    Over 250,000 trustees in Scotland are volunteers and give their time and skills to steer the work of third sector organisations. Individually as trustees, and collectively as boards, they maintain good governance.

    The governance code is a statement of best practice. It sets out the core principles and key elements of good governance for the voluntary sector in Scotland 

    The code is for use by all third sector organisations in Scotland, whatever their shape, size or activities. The code's principles apply equally to all organisations, but how an organisation follows each principle will depend on its size, income, activities, and complexity.
