Inquiry Report: Breaking Chains Global (SC048087)

29 Jan 2021

OSCR has concluded an inquiry into Breaking Chains Global, Scottish charity number SC048087 following media reports and receipt of concerns about the running of the charity, particularly high profile fundraising events that resulted in a significant amount of money being collected by the charity. 

Following consideration of a significant amount of information provided by the charity trustees, OSCR identified some weaknesses in the charity’s governance that required action to improve how the charity operates in the future.  To support the charity in taking appropriate steps to addressing these weaknesses, OSCR made a series of recommendations to the charity, some of which have already been addressed.  OSCR will monitor progress against these to ensure the improvements in governance continue.
