Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel Seeks New Members

Main Image

 

There are over 25,000 charities in Scotland! And the Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel (“the Panel”) oversees the enhanced self-regulation of fundraising for these charities.

We’re responsible for handling complaints about the fundraising practices of Scottish registered charities and in doing so, maintaining fundraising standards in Scotland.

As we enter our 5th year of supporting Scottish fundraising, we are looking for new volunteers to join the Panel.

We need new members who can contribute to the Panel’s strategic thinking and are as committed and passionate about supporting the self-regulation of fundraising in Scotland as we are.

What’s involved?

The formal time commitments are usually:

  • Attendance at 4 Panel meetings each year (*these are currently being held online)
  • participating in engagement events throughout the year
  • contributing to policy and consultations as they arise

It is anticipated any commitment to attend events will be limited to no more than 2 to 3 times a year.

Please note there is no need to have charity or fundraising experience. A genuine willingness to fully participate and an ability to apply a set of standards to practice is however critical.

How to apply?

The closing date for applications is 11:59pm on 16th July 2021.

Interviews will take place via Microsoft Teams the week commencing 26th July 2021. It is anticipated that successful candidates will be appointed at the next meeting of the Panel on 7th September 2021.
