Governance & Best Practice

"We confirm that our organisation complies with The Governance Code for the Community, Voluntary and Charitable Sector in Ireland.”

IPRT is committed to transparency and accountability around how we work. As an organisation that campaigns for full accountability in the penal system, we couldn't have it any other way

Governance

In November 2014, IPRT completed the processes required to achieve full compliance with the Governance Code - a Code of Practice for Good Governance of Community, Voluntary and Charitable Organisations in Ireland.This process ensures that we have in place appropriate policies and procedures at all levels in order to guarantee that the organisation has effective leadership in place, that we exercise appropriate controls, that we are transparent and accountable, that we work effectively, and crucially, that we behave with integrity.

Our signed Governance Code declaration can be viewed here.

Our board of trustees is listed here.

Transparency

IPRT is registered with the Charities Regulatory Authority, and files regular returns to the Register of Lobbying.

We are also committed to complying with the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising.

Financial Management and Accounts

Audited accounts are prepared annually, and approved at the AGM each year. Financial statements for previous years are included in the Annual Reports, and online. For full details on IPRT funding and financial management, including audited accounts for 2013, 2014 and 2015, see here. In 2015, we switched to FRS 102 SORP compliant accounts.
