The Community Action Suffolk Healthcheck is an online tool for Trustees and staff to assess the internal processes of their organisation. It will help to determine whether the correct policies and procedures in place, whilst adhering to ‘Best Practice’

The Healthcheck consists of ten different sections; these are:

  • Governance and Leadership
  • Finance and Fundraising
  • Business Planning/ Strategic Goals
  • Impact
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Meeting Liabilities
  • Communication
  • Recruitment, Training and Development
  • Working in partnership with other organisations
  • Local Knowledge and Networking

Simply read the statements and tick the appropriate box, which will either be a ‘yes’, ‘no’ or ‘n/a’. You will also have the option to tick the box ‘request CAS support’, where an email will be sent to the relevant member of staff, whom will then get in contact with you to discuss how we can help you further.

This is a FREE tool, which is easy to use, that will highlight areas of development for your organisation, to ensure that you are operating as effectively as possible.
