Transparency and governance at Galway Simon

At Galway Simon Community, we strive to be transparent and accountable at all times. We believe that our supporters should be informed not only about the work we do and its impact, but also about how we raise and spend our funds. We continually monitor the impact of our work and its impact on the people we support.

Galway Simon is governed by a Board of Directors with expertise and experience across a diverse range of areas. Our Board Members give their time on a voluntary basis and they are not compensated with pay. They hold meetings regularly and their job is to scrutinise everything we do. In addition, the work of our teams is overseen by six Board Sub-Committees including the Finance and Governance; Services, Quality & Safety; Property; Fundraising & Communications; and Fundraising Development Subcommittees.
