Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel now Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel

11 Jan 2022

Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel are now officially known as the Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel and have updated their website:

Now five years old, the Panel have chosen to rebrand to better reflect their purpose and create a simpler, clear identity for the public and charities that they serve.

The Scottish Fundraising Adjudication Panel has been established for the purposes of overseeing enhanced self-regulation of fundraising in Scotland, to be responsible for fundraising standards in Scotland and to handle fundraising complaints related to Scottish registered charities. Their core functions are:

  • to oversee fundraising standards in Scotland; and
  • to oversee fundraising complaints.

If you have a fundraising complaint which you have been unable to resolve with the charity, you can escalate the complaint to the Panel as part of a 3-stage process.
