Consultation Draft: Charity Trustee Guidance

OSCR has updated updated its guidance to reflect the practical experience of many Scottish charities. The law and charity trustees duties have not changed. They are trying to set out in a more straightforward way what charity trustees must consider, so that they meet legal requirements, ensure that their charities are well-run, and avoid some of the common problems that can arise.
