The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) is seeking your views on its draft Fundraising Guidance.

Fundraising is an essential activity for many, if not most, charities. It’s what supports them in pursuing their charitable objectives – and it ultimately rests on public confidence. When fundraising, there are rules that must be followed and charity trustees must be aware of their responsibilities.
The laws around fundraising have not changed but due to the changes in fundraising self-regulation over the past 2 years and the heightened awareness about fundraising practices, those at OSCR feel that new guidance is necessary.


To ensure that guidance is as robust as possible it is important for the sector to provide input. Consultation is an essential part of OSCR’s policy making process. It gives them the opportunity to seek your opinions.
The consultation on our draft Fundraising Guidance is open from 07 September to 1 December 2017. The response is split into parts:

Online usability questionnaire - https://www.oscr.org.uk  this strand will take a few minutes to complete and asks you to rate how easy the draft guidance is to navigate and understand.

 www.oscr.org.uk  is strand asks more detailed questions about the content of the draft guidance and the technical guide. Respondents will provide their answers to a series of questionson a consultation response form, which can be returned by post or emailed to info@oscr.org.uk.
