- Overall aim
This event aims to:
- set out the broad plans for starting the review of charity regulation
- provide food for thought on how the review could look
- give details on how to inform the shape and scope of the review, and most importantly,
- get your ideas on how to best engage with the sector.
Todays charity landscape looks very different to the way it did in 2005 when Scotland’s regime of charity regulation was first introduced. The Scottish Government is aware that the nature of the charity sector is changing and rapidly adapting to the challenges faced by society.
During the passage of the Charities (Regulation and Administration) (Scotland) Act 2023, the Scottish Government committed to a wider review of charity regulation. This review aims to take a more holistic approach and look at non-legislative ways to improve regulation.
In this session we’ll hear from different voices on thoughts and ideas for the review. We will also hear from the Scottish Government on plans and next steps.
As well as exploring what a review of charity regulation could cover, we want your ideas on how best to involve a range of stakeholders across charity sector in shaping the review, making it as inclusive and accessible as possible.
