Governance, Finances and Reporting
Habitat for Humanity Ireland is governed by a board of directors which provides leadership, strategic direction and controls the organisation.
The responsibility of the board includes setting the organisation’s strategic aims, identifying risks affecting the organisation, ensuring procedures are in place to manage the risks identified, approving policies and procedures, agreeing a reporting framework and reporting to stakeholders. The board’s actions are subject to relevant legislation, regulations and the members in general meetings. No remuneration is paid to Directors for their services on the Board. The board meets regularly and delegates the day-to-day operation of the organisation to the Executive Director, management and staff.
Habitat for Humanity Ireland is signed up to the Dóchas Code of Governance, and is on the journey to compliance with the Governance Code.
President Michael D. Higgins is Patron of Habitat for Humanity Ireland.
