Charities with no clear connection to Scotland to be removed from register

Charities that operate in Scotland but do not demonstrate a clear connection may have its status revoked under a new proposal put forward by the Scottish government.

A consultation by the Scottish government is underway to determine if charities on the Scottish Charity Register (OSCR) should remain, with concerns that organisations that do not “have and retain a connection to Scotland” are not being effectively regulated.

It is part of a greater proposal to build on and improve trust and transparency, as well as provide OSCR with stronger enforcement powers to ultimately increase efficiency.
