Congratulations to (SVE) for putting on an excellent evening of celebration for the amazing volunteers in Stirling.  It was fantastic to meet the individuals who were behind the applications and to hear from their own words, the difference they make for others, through using their own time and skills.

Charities and the Referendum

Latest Guidance from OSCR

Scotland's charities ARE allowed to speak out in the independence referendum, including advocating a Yes or a No vote, as long as they stay within the requirements of charity law, says the country's charity regulator.

OSCR has produced its final guidance on the independence referendum for Scottish charities for your information. This has been produced following consultation with the charity sector and sets out how Scottish charities can participate in the referendum process within the framework of charity law.

To help charities prepare, the Regulator has also published three webcasts where individual charities set out how they approached the issue and considered the referendum as part of their strategic planning. Click to view the webcasts:
