OSCR – The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator

OSCR is the independent regulator and registrar for over 23,000 Scottish charities, including community groups, religious charities, schools, universities, grant-giving charities and major care providers. OSCR’s vision is for charities you can trust and that provide public benefit, underpinned by the effective delivery of their regulatory role.

A proactive monitoring programme has been developed based upon the submission of an annual return, a supplementary monitoring return for charities with a gross income of £25,000 of more, and a set of annual accounts submitted to OSCR within 9 months of the charity financial year end date. Basic income expenditure totals are published on the OSCR website along with contact details, objectives etc.

OSCR does not publish full Charity Accounts and Constitutions on the website. The public have the right to the following information under s.23 (1) (a) and (b) of the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005 from the charity directly:
