How we are governed

Find out more about our Governance

Charity governance code pillars

We are governed by a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the effective governance of the charity and for safeguarding the organisation’s assets. They have ultimate responsibility for the charity, ensuring it is solvent, well-run, delivering on outcomes for the beneficiaries and the very reason for the charity’s existence. The Trustees also have the responsibility to ensure that the charity complies with charity law and with the requirements of the Charity Commission as regulator; in particular they ensure that the charity prepares reports on what it has achieved as well as Annual Report and Accounts as required by law. The Board is split into three sub-committees who work with the Staff team to report back to the board and who meet quarterly. Operational running of the charity is delegated to the Senior Leadership Team.

Accountability

As an organisation we are committed to holding ourselves accountable and being transparent in all areas of our work.

Safeguarding

We take safeguarding very seriously and all staff are updated regularly on safeguarding policies and procedures for both children and adults. We ensure our partners are also committed to high standards of safeguarding. For more information about our safeguarding, please contact enquiries@roalddahlcharity.org.

We fundraisie responsibly and are a member of the Fundraising Regulator. We ensure we are generating income strategically and putting as much income as possible towards the beneficiary ensuring that the costs to generate funds stay as low as possible. If you have any queries or would like to fundraise, please get in touch.

Data protection

All of your data is treated carefully and with respect. Please visit our privacy policy for more information.

The environment and sustainability

In the past year we have been instigating the first stages of a digital strategy to move away from paper based ways of working to digital based. We now use Office 365 tools reducing printing costs, postage costs, and paper usage. 

We now recycle all of our recyclable waste material and ensure that staff and volunteers understand the benefits of doing so. Half of our staff either lift share, use public transport, walk or cycle to work and again we ensure that they understand the benefits of being economical and environmentally friendly with travel.

We constantly review our energy provider use green tariffs where we can.
