Read our guidance on the law around fundraising and how the self-regulation system works in Scotland and rest of the UK.

There are many aspects of fundraising which OSCR does not regulate and that we cannot provide guidance on.

This guidance covers the areas that we do regulate. 

Fundraising guidance for charity trustees

In this guide we explain the rules set out in the 2009 Regulations, which state:

  • the information that must be contained in the fundraising agreements between benevolent bodies and those who fundraise for them and
  • the information that must be supplied when asking for a financial donation on behalf of a benevolent body.
