Governance. Making the legal practical.
Good governance helps organisations perform effectively. Our governance team identify weaknesses and help improve effectiveness and overall performance. And, because they are integrated with our legal practise, our governance consultancy will keep you ahead of the ever-changing legal and regulatory requirements you face.
Understanding what good governance looks like is tough. A lack of perspective can make it difficult to see where the problems lie. Changes to reviews and regulation make it even harder for boards to keep track. We are going through unprecedented change in the social housing sector, with many challenges that lie ahead. The need for good governance and a robust board is vital.
Poor governance can damage the fragile trust between housing providers and communities, and significantly impact on your standing with regulators and financial viability. Equally, good governance is a hallmark of a high performing organisation.
We have traditionally worked with a wide variety of health and social care providers, as well as those within social housing and the mutual sector. Our clients benefit from being able to compare and contrast their situation with lessons learnt at other organisations.
Our team will show you what constitutes the latest in best practice. We work regularly with a range of codes of governance and regulatory frameworks and our senior associates bring a range of insights from different sectors. We also have strong links with the Good Governance Institute, the National Housing Federation and the HCA.
With the full support of the Capsticks legal team behind us, we understand the legal ramifications of change and how that applies to governance in making sure organisations are fully compliant.
You might say we’re experts at making the governance practical and relevant to your circumstances.
