Governance

YST Governance
Here you can find our key governance documentation. This includes the terms of reference for our Board and sub-committees along with our annual report and financial statements.

As an organisation which receives public funding through Sport England, we are required to comply with A Code for Sports Governance. The Code includes a set of mandatory requirements across five principles of good governance: structure, people, communication, standards and conduct, and policies and processes.

In July 2018, Youth Sport Trust received confirmation from Sport England that it is in compliance with the highest level of the Code – Tier 3.

However, achieving good governance is an ongoing commitment, reflected in the fact that, within our strategy, one of the tactics under the ‘Strengthening Foundations’ objective, is focussed on ‘Maintaining Good Governance’.

We have recently reviewed our charitable objects and our governing document has been updated accordingly – see Articles of Association – June 2019.

The terms of reference (TOR) for our Board of Trustees/Directors and its two sub-committees are also available to view on the right-hand side of this page along with our Annual Accounts and Financial Statements.
