Charities & Voluntary Organisations

Good governance requires effective engagement with your charity stakeholders, but maximising turnout can be a challenge.

As the UK’s leading independent provider of ballot, election and voting services, we help hundreds of Charities, Associations and Membership Organisations to deliver good governance around key elections, issues and decisions.

Our experienced sector team has an in depth understanding of the specific challenges charities face, the regulations and how they must be applied, and the importance of engaging your members, volunteers, stakeholders and donors.

As the Charity Commission has said, good governance is no longer an optional extra. With ERS, you can be confident of impartial, fair advice and expert project management for your AGM, EGM or SGM to ensure voting is easy and secure. Our work often involves sensitive issues so confidentiality, independence and impartiality are of the utmost importance.

We know what it takes to engage voters, but we also understand the challenges involved when Charities seek to move away from mail-only elections. We have helped many of our clients to develop digital strategies to deliver secure and more cost-effective solutions while ensuring their members and stakeholders remain engaged and able to participate fully.

Our wide range of services for Charities includes:

Modern.gov – a champion of good governance and paperless meetings.

What our client thinks

We received expert knowledge and communication from ERS during a tricky election process. This helped us to work through the details of the project, and ultimately deliver a successful election.
