Child abuse charity says it will be cleared
A probe has been launched by OSCR into a leading child abuse charity.
Alloa-based Wellbeing Scotland, formerly known as Open Secret, is headed by Janine Rennie, a former Scottish Parliament candidate who has been openly critical of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.
The charity was set up in 1994 and had an income of nearly £778,000 in 2019/2020.
A spokesman for Wellbeing Scotland said the probe was sparked by a malicious complaint.
He added: “OSCR have written to the board to confirm they do not feel there is anything of a regulatory nature.”
In 2018 former Wellbeing Scotland director Safia Ali – who was also a Labour election candidate – stood down from its board over alleged anti-Semitic comments made on social media.
OSCR said: “We have considered a significant amount of information and are looking to engage with the charity trustees.”
