The SGA is a unique partnership between The Chartered Governance Institute UK & Ireland and the Sports Councils from across the UK.
We are delighted that, after supporting organisations invested in by Sport England and UK Sport since we launched in February 2020, we are now extending the SGA audience and are excited to welcome to the Academy organisations from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
This new geographical range will not only help us to support and promote improved governance across the UK, but will also widen the SGA community and provide increased sharing and peer-learning opportunities.
