RESTART Albury Wodonga is a community based, volunteer run charity. The organisation transformed its structure, capability and capacity with the support of the Good Governance program.
Good Governance Mentoring
Trained mentors experienced in governance are matched to community organisations. The mentor works with the community organisation to undertake a skills audit and create an action plan focusing on the organisation’s key priorities.
The mentor provides guidance, support and resources to build solutions to the key concerns. Resources provided by mentor may include inviting a community member experienced in finance providing a financial literacy workshop for the organisation. The resources could be templates or examples of documents developed by other organisations. At the end of the mentoring relationship a number of resources may be developed to further support the organisation, including:
- organisation specific governance manual,
- strategy document,
- role descriptions and
- policy and procedural documents.
