Charity Scotland summary document: the report of The Scottish Charity Law Commission

Jean McFadden

    Research output: Book/ReportOther report

    Abstract

    Members of the Scottish Charity Law Commission were asked to review the law relating to charities in Scotland and to make recommendations on any reforms considered necessary. In taking forward the review the Commission considered the following: the structure of regulation and support for the charitable sector in Scotland; the operational effects of Scottish legislation on charities of all types and size, bearing in mind the need to encourage voluntary and charitable activity and the contribution which the voluntary sector makes to the social economy; how best to provide the charitable sector with definitive advice and information; the requirement to protect the public, ensuring high standards among charities but at the same time avoiding over-burdensome administrative requirements; whether in addition to reform, the law should also be consolidated.
