What We Do

Organisational Management

IDEA has been providing support to members around the efficient and professional management of their organisation since it was established. This work included a Good Governance group supporting members to implement the Governance Code for Community and Voluntary Organisations, when it was introduced.

Reflecting our members’ changing needs, our support now focuses on guidance for Development Education funding applications. We continue to support members wishing to access training in other areas of organisational management and governance, by sign-posting opportunities with specialists in those areas. We also provide bespoke support to members who request specific information or guidance on IDEA’s own experience of governance and related issues.


We organise training, seminars & meetings to build capacity in the following areas:


IDEA works to connect its membership and also to connect Development Education to wider audiences.
