Good governance means focussing on the organisation’s purpose and on outcomes.

The function of governance is to ensure that an organisation fulfils its overall purpose, achieves its intended outcomes and operates in an effective, efficient and ethical manner. This principle guides all governance activity. The documents contained here and throughout the site are key to the framework used by the Board to meet good governance standards.
