Scottish charity law: Consultation opens

The Scottish Government is consulting on significant changes to charity regulation. The review, which aims to improve transparency, accountability and trust in Scottish charities, is largely informed by suggestions from OSCR – including proposals to publish annual reports and accounts, to hold an internal trustee database, and to extend trustee disqualification criteria – but is also seeking comments on other issues. The consultation closes on 1 April and more information can be found here

ACF is developing its response and invites input from members. We are also working with Scottish Grant Makers to support their work on this consultation. If you would like to discuss this consultation, please contact
