Charity Health Check
The Charity Health Check
The Charity Health Check is a comprehensive and practical organisational review for small-to-medium charities (under £2 million) that will help you identify and address the issues that may be draining your charity’s resources, limiting its expansion and putting it at risk.
The Charity Health Check has been designed to be efficient and cost-effective, enabling you to swiftly and effectively identify your high, medium and low priority next steps for good organisational effectiveness.

Why would my charity need a Health Check?
Charities are often firmly focussed on their cause, which is often not helped by funders preferring to support operational projects rather than organisational health. Despite this, many charity crises are caused by failures in organisational effectiveness and good governance not being picked up in time and addressed.
A Charity Health Check also aligns well with strategic planning processes, providing you with key targets and priorities to incorporate into your strategic plan’s internal organisational targets.
What does the Health Check assess?
The Charity Health Check assesses legal, best practice and practical standards around the areas of:
- strategy and planning,
- organisational systems and standards,
- staff management and performance oversight,
- governance and the Board of Trustees,
- fundraising systems,
- digital approach,
- partnership working, and
It is important to note that the Health Check is not a full governance review. This can be delivered separately but requires consultation with all Trustees.
