Charity Register Download

The Scottish Charity Register is a public Register of all charities in Scotland. It contains individual entries for each charity including a charity's name, contact address, charitable purposes and certain financial information.

We have made a Charity Register Download available so that the information from the Register can be re-used. The download contains the basic details for the full list of Scottish charities and will be updated on a daily basis. It is free of charge.

You can download the list once you have agreed to the terms and conditions below.

More information on the fields contained, and the format of these can be found in the description of Scottish Charity Register Download fields . The Charity Register Download does not contain;-

  • contact names and addresses for charities, because we are concerned that this information could be used for direct marketing.
  • the breakdown of detailed financial information as this is only available for a small number of larger charities
  • history of income and expenditure for charities

Information use

We hope that making an extract of the Register available to download is the first in a series of steps that aim to improve the accessibility of Scottish charity data. We would be grateful if you could answer the following questions so we can evaluate how this information is being used to help inform our next steps:
