Code of Best Practice


The Code of Practice for the Governance of State Bodies 2016 requires that all public bodies develop and publish a Code of Best Practice for Board members. Léargas is not a public body, it is a registered charity and a limited company, we meet all statutory obligations, and we comply fully with the Charities Code of Practice. This document references the Code of Practice for State Bodies, which Léargas strives to comply with to the extent that it is relevant and proportionate to our operations. This policy was renewed and approved by the Léargas Board on 23 March 2023, further reviews will take place as appropriate. The purpose of this Code of Best Practice is to provide Board Members with clear guidelines as to their standard of behaviour, responsibilities and best practice in fulfilling their obligations to Léargas
