Charity Accounts and Constitutions
Some charities publish their accounts on their own websites and we are taking steps to encourage an increasing number of charities to do so. Where this is the case, the charity’s Register entry will show the link in the ‘Link to charity accounts’ field, above. We accept no responsibility for the functionality, accuracy or content of external websites, however. If you experience a technical issue with the above link, you should contact the charity direct.
You 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:
- a copy of the charity's latest statement of account
- a copy of the charity's constitution.
You can contact the charity to request this information using the information on the charity’s Register entry.
Details of charity trustees
OSCR does not keep a register of Scottish Charity Trustees. This is not one of our statutory functions or something that we are resourced to do. Information about Scottish Charities should be available from the trustees' report of the charity's annual accounts. Please contact the charity directly using the above search to find this information
