A Charitable Concern?

How charities in Scotland are preparing for the potential for constitutional change
 
In partnership with ACOSVO, the Trust co-hosted a series of seminars during 2013 on how the independence debate, and its outcome, would impact on charities. The Trust has now published a new briefing on ten internal and external steps charities may take in order to respond to the potential for further constitutional change which emerged from the discussions at the seminars. The briefing and the notes of the seminars can be downloaded on the link, right. An infographic of the ten steps is available here.
 
The seminars follow on from our report ‘A Charitable Concern? How charities in Scotland are preparing for the potential for further constitutional change’, in collaboration with Professor Richard Kerley.
 
The report explores the current state of awareness, understanding of, and responses to the implications of possible further constitutional change amongst charities in Scotland. 
 
The report focuses on the diversity of the charities sector in Scotland, the views of senior stakeholders within the sector on whether their organisation would be affected by further constitutional change, and whether charities are making formal preparations to investigate the possible implications of further constitutional change, at the request of their governing bodies.
 
The full report can be downloaded on the link, right.
 
We have also produced an infographic highlighting some of the main findings. This is available here.
