Wikimedia UK is a charity dedicated to collecting, developing, promoting and distributing open knowledge. Wikimedia UK is the local Wikimedia chapter covering the United Kingdom and supports volunteer editors of, and contributors to, Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects which are independently run by the Wikimedia Foundation.

Wikimedia UK commissioned Rosie to carry out two audits of its governance, mapping the charity’s progress in a systematic way.

Upon completion of the final audit the Wikimedia UK’s chair said on the charity’s website that ‘The report is worth reading in its entirety, as it includes a wealth of advice, analysis and commentary that will be of interest and use not only to Wikimedia UK itself but also to the community at large and to other organisations within the movement. On behalf of the board I would once again like to thank Rosie Chapman for her comprehensive and insightful analysis which will be of great help in enabling us to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.’

 “Rosie has undertaken two governance audits for us, and on both occasions we were impressed with her attention to detail and methodology, as well as the discreet way in which she dealt with some sensitive issues. We found Rosie extremely easy to deal with and would wholeheartedly recommend her.”
