Video - Raising a concern about a Scottish charity

18 Jan 2017

If you are concerned about the way a charity is being run, we want to hear from you.

Before you contact us, it is important that you understand the following information first, as there are some instances where your concern should be sent instead to the charity or another organisation to be dealt with.

In the video below we will explain:

  • What concerns charity trustees should deal with
  • When you should report your concern to the Police
  • What concerns OSCR can deal with
  • What information you should provide to us
  • What happens after you raise a concern to us


In addition to this, our Inquiry Policy sets out what you, the charity, and the public can expect from us. The Policy is designed to be helpful and easy to read, and we recommend that you have a look at this together with the information below before contacting us. 

• Inquiry Policy
• Fact sheet – What to expect if your charity is subject to an inquiry
• Fact sheet – OSCR’s formal powers
