Scottish seminar tackles accountability

Third sector finance experts from around Scotland will meet tomorrow for a seminar on key investment issues for Scottish charities.

The free event in Edinburgh will stress the importance of financial accountability after last year's decision by the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator to expose 300 Scottish charities for not filing appropriate financial information.

The speakers will include Jane Ryder, chief executive of the OSCR, Nick Addington, grants director at the Scottish Community Foundation, and Guy Davies, head of charities and philanthropy at Barclays Wealth.

"With the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act having had time to bed in, the timing of the seminar is particularly pertinent," said Diane Wilde, head of charities at Barclays Wealth's Scotland division.

"Over the past few years, charities in Scotland have dealt with considerable change in their accountability and the way their trusts are managed," Wilde said.
