As part of a review commissioned by the Scottish government, the regulator wants charities and other interested people to fill in a short survey

The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator is asking for views on how the new system of fundraising regulation in Scotland is working.

After the negative media coverage of fundraising in 2015, the Scottish charity sector opted not to come under the remit of the new Fundraising Regulator in England but instead set up its own Scottish Fundraising Standards Panel in December last year.

The Scottish government has now commissioned an external review of the system, a commitment that was made when the panel was launched.

As part of the review, the OSCR, which provides secretariat services for the panel, has invited charities and people to give their views on the system by completing a short survey.

Last week, Alison Elliot, the panel’s chair, revealed it had received no complaints worthy of investigation since it was set up.

In a statement, the OSCR said completing the survey would “help ensure fundraising regulation in Scotland remains fit for purpose”.

The survey is open until 20 October and can be found on the OSCR website.
