We’re consulting on our new draft version of the Fundraising guidance. This guidance is designed to help charity trustees and fundraisers understand the requirements of Charity law and trustee duties in relation to fundraising and self-regulation.
We have decided to separate the guidance in two, the first part looks at fundraising and charity trustee duties, the second part looks at the detailed requirements of the 2009 Regulations that apply to all ‘benevolent fundraising’ not just fundraising by charities.
OSCR regulates charities registered in Scotland, but we don’t regulate the full range of ‘benevolent fundraising’ that takes place in Scotland. We hope that separating the guidance in two helps to make that distinction clearer and recognise that not all charity trustees will need the technical detail about the 2009 Regulations.
We want to make this guidance as clear as possible and easy for a range of audiences to use. It is designed to work better as online guidance, although a full PDF version will always be available to download.
The consultation response is split into two strands:
Strand 1: survey monkey – usability questionnaire
This strand will take a few minutes to complete and asks you to rate how easy the draft guidance is to navigate and understand.
Strand 2: response form with usability and content questions
This strand asks you to rate how easy the draft guidance is to navigate as well as more detailed questions about the content.
You can choose to respond to Strand 1 (online usability survey) or Strand 2 (by downloading and completing the response form).
This is an opportunity to comment on our new draft version of the Fundraising Guidance, which will shape the final guidance to be published in early 2018.
