Non-Governmental Organisations

Our role is to support government funded Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) by assessing organisational performance and encouraging agencies to work confidently and effectively. NGOs are not part of government and do not exercise governmental authority in their own right. However, they exercise their own authority in all matters relating to their own governance – that is, advocacy, policies, and procedures. They may receive financial and/or other support from the Government.
