About the DIY Committee Guide

Whether you are a member of a management committee/board or working to support management committees, you will find this site full of useful resources.

This site was originally developed in 2005 by the Volunteer Development Agency (now Volunteer Now) in partnership with 14 other organisations.  It provides a central point of access to a wide range of practical, user-friendly resources developed by groups across the sector and beyond.

Now restructured, the DIY Committee Guide also provides clear support for groups implementing the Code of Good Governance for the Voluntary and Community Sector.  The new site structure follows the 7 principles of the Code.  This work has been carried out in partnership with the Developing Governance Group.
