Our governance

Sacred Heart Mission is an Incorporated Association, and as such, our Board of Governance ensures the Mission works toward achieving its purpose as a charitable organisation in a way that also meets its ethical, legal and financial obligations under the Associations Act. Read our Rules of Association here.

The Sacred Heart Mission Board also has a strong line of sight to the strategic plan, to ensure the organisation is achieving both its mission and strategic objectives. It is provided with robust reporting through a monthly dashboard – a detailed snapshot of actual performance and analysis of results, across a number of critical areas including finance, fundraising, service delivery and human resources.

Working together, the Board of Governance and the CEO assume responsibility for the four principles that underpin Sacred Heart Mission’s governance:

  • A just culture – building a culture of trust and honesty, where there is open discussion of error and where staff willingly report adverse events
  • Foster commitment – fostering organisational commitment to continuous improvement by assigning clear responsibilities for service quality and safety to the CEO and managers
  • Monitoring systems – establishing rigorous monitoring and reporting systems
  • Evaluate performance – the active evaluation of service responses to ensure that quality and safety issues are addressed.
