Revising guidance for charity trustees in Scotland

Scottish charity regulator OSCR has done a full revision of its Charity Trustee guidance, and would like the sector to give feedback on the draft.

‘Guidance for Charity Trustees’ has been updated in light of the Scottish Charity Regulator’s experience over the past nine years, and aims to support those running the country’s 24,900 charities in meeting their legal duties.

The intent is to set out in a more straightforward way what charity trustees must consider, so that they meet legal requirements, ensure that their charities are well-run, and avoid some of the common problems that can arise.

Consultation runs to 18th December. The final guidance is due for publication in spring 2016.
