The Scottish Fundraising Working Group are currently seeking feedback on the future of fundraising regulation in Scotland.
The summer of 2015 saw an unprecedented focus on the fundraising techniques used by some charities. In response, two reviews of fundraising regulation were performed. The first, the Etherington Review, was conducted by NCVO and discussed a UK-wide system, but covered only England and Wales. The second, which covered Scotland, was conducted by SCVO.
The Scottish Fundraising Working Group, convened by SCVO, has developed three options for a new charity fundraising regulatory system in Scotland. They are now seeking the public’s views on the best direction to take. The preferred option will be refined further before a consultation is held with the public in the spring of 2016.
All responses will be treated confidentially, and responses can be edited and expanded upon at any time until the online survey closes.
The closing date for responses is Thursday 31st March.
