Charities and Auto-Enrolment - what you need to know

The Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) has produced new guidance for Scottish charities about pension auto-enrolment.

Every employer in the UK, including charities, must put certain paid employees into an appropriate pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called 'auto-enrolment'.

This guidance is aimed at small and medium charities with paid employees. It lets charity trustees know their legal responsibilities in relation to auto-enrolment by explaining some of the basic requirements.

The guidance tells trustees:

  • What auto-enrolment is

  • What a charity has to do

  • Where to get more help and advice

Scottish fundraising regulation: what's so different?

Scotland’s self-regulatory system of fundraising was launched in July 2016.

Recently, we interviewed Alison Elliot, Chair of the Independent Fundraising Standards and Adjudication Panel for Scotland, who answered questions about Scottish fundraising regulation. Alison also gives advice to the public and charities about the fundraising concern procedure.
