Following the publication of a report on the Scottish Government’s charity law consultation issued this afternoon (Wednesday 3 July 2019), David McNeill, Director of Development for the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO) said:

“SCVO welcomes the broad support received for the proposed updates to legislation – there is an important connection between robust charity law and maintaining high levels of public trust and confidence in the collective reputation of the voluntary sector. Earlier this year we voiced concerns that this consultation had not gone far enough to deliver a comprehensive review of Scottish charity law, and as such we welcome the Scottish Government’s commitment to further conversation around reform and look forward to exploring the options to build on the current proposals.”
