The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has published a new booklet to make the basics of Scottish charity law easier to understand.
“Being a Charity in Scotland” uses simple graphics and straightforward language to help those who run Scottish charities understand their responsibilities. The guide is aimed at:
- 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
- organisations that want to become charities
The guide sets out the key points charities need to know about Scottish charity law. There are links to detailed guidance pages contained on the OSCR website, along with information on other organisations that can provide help and advice to charities.
To download the guide, or for further information, please visit the OSCR website.
