Our vision is for charities you can trust and that provide public benefit, underpinned by the effective delivery of our regulatory role.

We were set up to:

  • Increase public confidence in charities through effective regulation.
  • Increase transparency and public accountability of charities.
  • Increase charity trustees' compliance with the 2005 Act.
  • Establish and maintain OSCR as a trusted, effective and innovative regulator.
  • Minimise the burden of regulation on charities wherever possible, with particular emphasis on reducing multiple reporting.
  • Operate effectively and efficiently, demonstrating a commitment to the principles and practice of Best Value.
