Our New Governance Arrangements
The growth of our business has required us to adapt our organisational structure and ways of working to be more productive and efficient. So we have refreshed our governance arrangements to ensure they provide strategic direction and a sound system of internal control.
In 2015/16 the governance of Corporate Responsibility was transferred from the Chairman’s Committee to a newly created Corporate Responsibility Committee. This is chaired by an independent Non-Executive Director, an additional Non-Executive Director, two Elected Directors, and the Partners’ Counsellor. In 2016, Dame Fiona Reynolds joined the Committee, bringing with her a wealth of corporate responsibility experience and further bolstering its independence. Of her appointment, Dame Fiona says: 'I am delighted to have been selected to join the Committee and I look forward to working with the Partnership on these vitally important issues.'
