Read OSCR's guidance on the Charities and Benevolent Fundraising (Scotland) Regulations 2009. The guidance aims to help benevolent bodies and those who fundraise on their behalf to understand and comply with the requirements.
NOTE: Some parts of this guidance refer to the old system of self-regulation and will be updated later in 2017. For up to date information on self-regulation see Fundraising pages.
Public charitable collections are a fundraising method that is the subject of specific regulations, which are administered and enforced by local authorities and by OSCR. Published in 2008.
