OSCR Corporate Plan 2020-23

03 Aug 2020

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has today published its Corporate Plan for 2020-23.

Our Corporate Plan 2020-23 sets out our strategic direction of business for the next three years.

It introduces our new vision for ‘a trusted and respected Scottish charity sector which positively contributes to society’ and includes information on:

  • who we are and what we do
  • our funding
  • strategic actions, outcomes, outputs and indicators
  • how we will report on our progress.

Our Corporate Plan starts at a time of unprecedented and unpredictable challenge for us all with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting every walk of life. For that reason, this Corporate Plan will be implemented with some flexibility, reflecting how our actions and priorities may require to change in response to the pandemic.

OSCR has also published an annual business plan detailing our priorities and activities for the year ahead on our four strategic outcomes set out in this corporate plan. These outcomes support our vision and values, and positively contribute and promote delivery of the national outcomes as set out in the Scottish Government’s National Performance Framework.

Maureen Mallon OSCR Chief Executive said,

‘I am delighted to share our new Corporate Plan.

‘Charities have shown time and time again that they are essential to a flourishing society in Scotland, and it is vital for public trust and confidence that the sector operates to the very highest standards.

‘In the Plan, you will see that we have used the knowledge gained as regulator to update our strategic direction and vision to better reflect how we can meet the expectations of the public, sector organisations and charities themselves.

‘We look forward to sharing updates on our progress as the plan progresses, and we will continue to review its content to ensure its relevance as time goes on.’
