Our structure and governance.

Our organisation is a company limited by guarantee (425299) with charitable status (registered charity number 218093).  We are a membership organisation and full membership is open to any national, regional and umbrella voluntary organisation in Wales. Other organisations, such as statutory bodies, private companies and individuals may join as non-voting members, as long as they support the objects of the Council.

Full members constitute the Council and can nominate and elect members to the WCVA Board. The Board must not consist of more than 16 members and it is legally and financially responsible for the organisation, ensuring that we know what we are supposed to do, that we have enough people and money to do it and that we do it well.  The WCVA Board meets four times a year.

The Board is helped in fulfilling its role by two sub-committees - WCVA Chairs Committee and WCVA Audit & Risk Committee, along with a number of project boards. The Board sets out the terms of reference and the membership of committees and project boards.

The Board is responsible for approving and monitoring the delivery plan as the basis of our work.
