Data and Research

OSCR collects and holds a huge amount of diverse data and information about charities and their work across Scotland. We generate data every day while registering and regulating Scotland’s charities, and we also carry out a wide range of research in order that we can learn more about what charities and the Scottish public think about regulation.

Some of the ways we collect and use data are summarised below.
