Governance Code

The DSPCA is managed and led by the Chief Executive Officer who reports directly to the Board of Trustees. The Board is comprised of voluntary Trustees from various different commercial and professional backgrounds, who generally meet with CEO on a monthly basis to oversee the good governance and management of the Society.

The DSPCA has been a registered member of and compliant with the standards of the Governance Code for voluntary organisations in Ireland for several years. With the recent introduction of the Charities Governance Code, by the Charities Regulator, the DSPCA ensures compliance with the good governance standards required by the Code by having systems and processes in place to ensure the Society achieves its charitable objectives with integrity and is managed in an effective, efficient, accountable and transparent way.
