OSCR Scottish Charity Regulator - Updating your governing document - Webinar
It is good governance practice to review your charity's governing document regularly to make sure it is still fit for purpose, and to remind your charity trustees of the rules. Sometimes it is necessary to make changes to help the charity operate better, or to modernise to move with the times. The pandemic has impacted on the governance of charities and introduced a need (for some) to make change to the governing document to allow for virtual meetings.

This webinar, presented by staff from the OSCR, is designed to help explain:

  • What is a governing document
  • Reviewing the governing document
  • Virtual meetings
  • How to change the document
  • Where to seek help
