Good Governance Community of Practice (CoP)
Good Governance mentoring delivers results. Good Governance client case study for Restart Albury Wodonga.
Restart Albury Wodonga, is a community based, volunteer run charity organisation.
Restart works as a community, to support those who have experienced homelessness.
The volunteer run organisation sources and provides household packs for people that are in crisis.
The aim of the program is to assist people to re-establish not only a house but a home.
Restart Albury Wodonga began in 2014 to help people leaving foster care to set up a home.
Initially the organisation accepted everything on offer, which resulted in donations of non essentials such as 1000 serviette holders, martini glasses etc. The extreme quantities of donated goods combined with a lack of structure resulted in Tara and her very small team becoming burnt out and overwhelmed.
Restart was at a crossroads, it would either fall apart or flourish. Tara met with Findex Albury to find a solution. Sally from Findex, suggested contacting Megs at the Albury Wodonga Volunteer Resource Bureau to explore the Good Governance Program.
A local based strategy driven by trained mentor experienced in Governance enabled a new volunteer based organisation to grow and extend.
The Good Governance Program has helped Tara to grow her knowledge of running a professional not for profit, protect her organisation and build Restart for the future.
