A unique collaboration

Onboard is a consultancy offering governance development, training and support to charities and social enterprises.

It brings together leading third sector consultants with Bates Wells Braithwaite, leaders in charity and social enterprise law. It is this unique collaboration between legal and governance experts that ensures the highest quality advice – advice that can make a measurable difference to the effectiveness of your organisation.

Good governance is what Onboard is all about.

At Onboard, we know that strong organisations develop not just through systems or structures but through individuals working together to deliver a mission. Delivering that mission isn’t easy. It takes a subtle blend of management expertise, strategic leadership and above all, vision.
