Through consultation with Governing Bodies of Sport and the PerformanceFocus Self-Evaluation Framework it is apparent that there are a number of Governance issues and developments of particular relevance and challenge to Northern Ireland governing bodies.

More information on future sessions, and other available courses, can be found on MySportNI.

Does your organisation need to register as a Charity?

The Charity Commission for Northern Ireland is the independent regulator of charities in Northern Ireland, responsible for ensuring a dynamic and well governed charities sector, in which the public can have confidence.

A new chapter in the history of charities has begun with the Charity Commission having now commenced compulsory registration. This is different from registration with Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) for charitable tax exemptions, so even if you have an HMRC registration number you must still apply for registration with the Commission.
