Our background & purpose

Who does the panel regulate?

We deal with fundraising complaints relating to Scottish registered charities. A list of all the charities in Scotland can be found on the Scottish Charity Regulator’s (OSCR) online register. For charities registered in England and Wales, the Fundraising Regulator will deal with these complaints. The Charity Commission for England and Wales (CCEW) holds an online register of charities registered there.
