Consultation launches

Views on improvements to the charity regulation in Scotland are being sought.

The Strengthening Scottish Charity Law Survey will run until 5 Feb and will build on a similar consultation held in 2019.

The consultation looked at proposals put forward by the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR).

The proposals broadly focus on improvements to charity law that would increase transparency and accountability in order to maintain public trust and confidence in charities and OSCR.

The Scottish Government’s directorate for local government and communities said it will provide stakeholders with an opportunity to help formulate a new position with charity law.

It added: “We want to hear from people working in and with the charity sector, members of the public, and anyone with an interest in charity law.
“The majority of respondents supported the proposals in the 2019 consultation, however the analysis report made clear that more policy development work and stakeholder engagement was required before we could bring forward any legislative changes.

“This engagement will build on the previous consultation responses and will assist the Scottish Government in deciding the next steps for charity law.”
