Governance Peer Challenge

Our Governance Peer Challenge programme is a form of specialist peer challenge that dovetails closely with our Corporate Peer Challenge programme.

Governance Peer Challenges focus on how councils demonstrate good governance and scrutiny, including a positive organisational culture, across all their functions including their approach to risk management.

The Governance Peer Challenge peer team involves LGA officer and Member peers from across the sector who are experienced in governance and culture including monitoring officer peers.

Each Governance Peer Challenge includes a focus on the following themes as these are critical to council performance and improvement:

  • Roles, responsibilities and relationships
  • Effective governance and scrutiny
  • Governance essentials
  • Rick management and audit
  • Organisational culture.
