About this Event

Preparing an Annual Report

An organisation’s annual report is a wonderful opportunity to tell their story and engage with their stakeholders (i.e. their beneficiaries, members, volunteers, staff, funders, supporters and regulators). It is a valuable instrument to demonstrate good governance, accountability and transparency.

The aim of this practical hands-on session is to understand the preparation of the Annual Report from the perspective of the Board Members, Directors, Trustees.

This course covers the basics of what is required in an annual report and then focuses on how to use the annual report as a way of showing the public, your members and funders how good your organisation is. The session will involve presentation and working in groups. Participants should bring a copy of their organisation’s most recent annual report with them.

Outcomes

At the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Understand the purpose of the annual report

  • Describe the legal requirements for an annual report

  • Review annual reports against a set of best practice criteria

  • Decide on type of presentation and content
