  • Charities Bill - Short survey and detailed consultation

    Created: 20/12/2022
    News/Events Category: General News

    The Social Justice and Social Security Committee recently issued a call for written views on the Charities (Regulation and Administration) (Scotland) Bill by 03 February 2023.

    The Committee wants to understand what impact the changes in the Bill might have. To make this as easy as possible for all charities to respond, no matter their size, the Committee is inviting people to share their views either through detailed consultation, or a short survey.

    Under the proposals in the Charities (Regulation and Administration) (Scotland) Bill, the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR), would have wider powers to investigate charities and charity trustees. Rules around who can be a charity trustee or senior office-holder in a charity would also be tightened.

    The proposed changes to the law were developed following suggestions from OSCR. Some of the changes are intended to ensure Scottish legislation is in line with updated legislation in England and Wales.

    You can access more information about the Bill here.

    Responding to the public consultation

    There are two options for those wishing to participate in this public consultation:

    Detailed consultation

    This includes general questions about the Bill, questions about the Financial Memorandum and the option to provide more detailed comments on individual sections of the Bill. 

    Digital survey

    The digital survey offers an opportunity for a charity to give their views on the bill without the time and resources required to complete the detailed consultation.

    Both the Call for Views and the digital survey will close on Friday 03 February 2023.
