GLK Solutions used their knowledge of effective governance and structures to feed into the report and make effective recommendations. In addition we completed further research to ensure the context of the Trust was considered and we could identify statutory compliance as well as best practice approaches.
We worked with identified contacts within the Trust including the Chair of Trust Board, Chairs of Governors for their services, and other senior leaders to start to gain an understanding of the opportunities and challenges within the Trust.
The report covered a raft of areas including:
- Recruitment of Trustees and Governors
- Succession planning
- Effective governance
- Compliance and statutory recording
- Organisation of meetings
The action plan provided as part of the report has given the Trust Board a clear steer to take their development further. We have also identified on the action plan potential leads within their Trust to further support their approach to managing each of the actions.
