Strengthening Scottish Charity Law Survey

The Scottish Government have a survey open to hear from charities, organisations and the general publics about charities and the legislation they need to adhere to.  


Proposals were put forward in 2019 through a consultation, however the analysis report made it clear that more policy development work and stakeholder engagement was required before any further changes should be brought in.

This engagement will build on the previous consultation responses and will assist the Scottish Government in deciding the next steps for charity law.

Closes 15th March 2020

There is a new payment being developed to replace Personal Independence Payments.  These are to be delivered by Social Security Scotland. This form of assistance is provided to disabled individuals between the ages of 16 and state pension age to mitigate the additional costs of living with a disability or health condition.

This consultation is about gathering views, ideas and solutions to make the new benefit work as well as possible.  It is clear there are things Scotland can learn from the benefits that have gone before it.  You could really make a difference in putting forward your thoughts and solutions.

Closes 25th February 2021
