Shaping Governance empowers effective governance for schools, councils, and non-profit organisations.

Our primary focus is to promote Good Governance as a fundamental pillar of success. Recognising the vital contributions of governors, trustees, and non-executives in shaping the future of educational institutions, public bodies, and charitable organisations, we are committed to providing comprehensive improvement support services. By enabling these leaders to excel in their roles, we strive to create positive impacts for the children and communities they serve.

At Shaping Governance, one of the significant advantages of our cross-sector work is the ability to gather and combine the best governance practices and use this unique perspective to help you transform your governance. Our dedication to shaping governance is at the core of our mission.
