OSCR launches new booklet about being a charity
The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has unveiled a brand new booklet to make the basics of Scottish charity law easier to understand.
Designed to be used throughout a charity’s life, ‘Being a Charity in Scotland’ uses simple graphics and straightforward language to help those who run Scottish charities understand their responsibilities.
The guide is for:
• Charity trustees of existing charities or people working in charities, especially smaller ones
• People who want to set up a charity
• Professionals who advise charities and organisations that want to become charities.
It sets out the key points charities need to know about Scottish charity law. Within the guide there are links to detailed guidance pages contained on our website and it also has information on other organisations that can provide help and advice to charities.
‘Being a Charity in Scotland’ is available online here.
