Abstract

Between the early 2000’s to present day the voluntary sector has been no stranger to scandal. It has only been in recent years that we have saw some respite with the development of the governance code to restore some order to the sector. The code of good governance was designed by the sector for the sector in a time when there was governing body to regulate them. The sector was ripe with controversies and scandal which saw the sector loose public trust. The code was a step forward for the sector but slow to get off the ground. As the code was created by organisations within the sector it adherence to it wasn’t mandatory. Today the code of governance is widely adapted in organisations and is used in conjunction with many policies and procedures, and legislation. But how did we get here in such a short time? The sector needed regulating and was left to its own devices for long enough. The voluntary sector was due for a major shift and with the sector in a state of distrust, it was due soon.
