Engage Daily Update - 15 December


The Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 (Meetings of Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisations) (Coronavirus) (No. 2) Regulations 2020
A copy of the regulations and supporting information can be found here
These regulations extend the ‘relevant period’ set out in Schedule 14 of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, meaning that SCIOs can continue to hold remote members meetings until 30 March 2021.
The continuing restrictions necessitated by COVID-19 mean that a SCIOs ability to hold general or members’ meetings in person (where this is specified in the constitution) is limited. These regulations allow SCIOs to use remote methods, such as video conference or phone calls to hold meetings with their members if they need to.
The time period originally ran until 30 December 2020, this is now extended for a final 3 months to 30 March 2021.

Many funders will require details about how your project is going to make a difference to the need you have identified. It is a good idea to think about the likely impact your project may make, and how you will measure it. Think about how you can capture the information you need while carrying out the project. It might prove difficult to go back and try to get that same information.

If you have any questions or want to know more then please contact us on info@engagerenfrewshire.com
