Former Charities download

You can download a list of former charities below. This information is updated daily and is free to download once you agree to the terms and conditions below.

The list shows all charities that were previously on the Scottish Charity Register and for some bodies it also shows the date the charity was removed ('ceased date') and the reason for removal. 

Although the Former Charities download shows similar fields to the Charity Register download, it is important to note that we hold very little information for some of the older former charities. Please read the description of Former Charities download fields to find details on the type of information contained within the Former Charities download. This is particularly important if you plan to use the 'ceased date'.
