Scots regulator in waterfront move

John Plummer

Scottish charity regulator the OSCR has moved to waterfront offices in Dundee.

Since its establishment in 2003, the OSCR has grown from having three staff to 36. This reflects its new regulatory powers, which include the maintenance of the Scottish charity register.

The OSCR registered its 20,000th charity last week when it approved the application of the New Farm Loch Playgroup in Kilmarnock.

"Our new offices provide a modern working environment that reflects the new, modern framework for Scotland's charity sector," said Jane Ryder, chief executive of the OSCR.

Formerly based across the city at Argyll House, the OSCR now shares offices with the Care Commission and the Scottish Social Services Council.
