Diagnostic Review of Organisational Capacity

Before carrying out your activities, or even applying for funding, it is vital that you know where your organisation’s relative strengths and weaknesses are.

This reduces the risk of delivering poor services, failing to achieve what funders need and potentially harming service users. It will also help you make the best case for funding when you apply for grants or contracts.

Our diagnostic review service can help you to evaluate all aspects of your community organisation.

Created in accordance with the principles of NCVO Code of Good Governance, the diagnostic review service helps you to see whether the building blocks are in place to make up a well-governed, robust and sustainable organisation.

A typical diagnostic review can cover a range of areas, including:

  1. Governance
  2. Managing membership issues
  3. Managing staff
  4. Policies and procedures
  5. Volunteers
  6. Strategy
  7. Planning
  8. Monitoring and evaluation
  9. Fundraising
  10. Finance procedures and budgeting
  11. Risk
  12. Marketing
  13. Consultation
  14. Quality assurance and performance management systems
  15. Partnership issues
  16. Safeguarding vulnerable people.
