Where to from here?


Congratulations on completing the Board Health Check. We hope the report gave you some useful insights into how well your Board or governing body is working to achieve your mission. If you have discovered there are some gaps or areas for improvement, there are plenty of resources out there to help you to improve, from articles and podcasts to toolkits and structured trainings. We have listed some resources below, the majority of which are provided for free. This list is non-exhaustive and may be added to over time.

Don’t forget to also provide us at Board Health Check with some feedback so that we can continue to provide the best resource possible. We’d love to hear from you here.
