Overall aim
  • Help trustees to recognise potential concerns, and behaviours and actions to avoid
  • Identify learning points from how other charities have dealt with challenges and issues
  • Help trustees to use these to feel more confident in running their own charities
  • Help trustees and those who advise them to understand how OSCR goes about its work and how we balance help with compliance with holding charities to account
Description

What does the Scottish Charity Regulator get up to when it inquires into concerns about a charity? And how can charity trustees benefit from that experience? Part of the regulator's role is to to promote public trust and confidence in the charity sector by investigating where there may be misconduct in a charity but also by helping trustees to understand their duties and comply with charity law.

So, what kind of issues has OSCR been looking at recently? How does it decide whether or not to take action? What are the big issues it sees for charity trustees? And what can we all learn from these experiences about charity governance, the ups and downs of running a charity and how to avoid some of the pitfalls?

At this session, some of OSCR's most experienced front-line staff will take you through some of the most interesting topics from their recent work, look at case studies, share learning points, answer your questions and hear your reactions to the issues.
