Portgordon Community Trust Governance Support

Portgordon | 2022 | Accelerate

Portgordon Community Trust approached Accelerate as a new Development Trust about to take on a Community Hub and working towards asset transfer of the local harbour. A Community Enterprise Associate supported the group to identify and develop the documents and procedures needed to successfully undertake these projects and to support their first staff member in their new post.

With Accelerate support the Trust undertook a governance audit & developed a risk register

They also created and approved a health and safety policy

And carried out a board skills audit to prepare and set up a GDPR compliant membership application process


"Portgordon Community Trust is delighted to have had the opportunity to recieve support from Community Enterprise through the Accelerate Programme. We have blocks on which to build the future of our organisation and can't thank them enough for being part of our journey."
