Risk is an everyday part of charitable activity. One of the core challenges facing regulators of charitable organisations is ensuring that their action is appropriate, targeted and proportionate, and that they balance enforcement of legislative requirements against placing an undue burden on charitable organisations.

We are delighted to announce the Scottish Civil Society Data Partnership, a collaboration between the Universities of Stirling and St Andrews and the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations. Funded by the ESRC as part of their investment in the Big Data Network, the partnership aims to improve the availability of administrative data about Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), to help these organisations to make better use of the data that they collect, and to facilitate collaborations between academics, CSOs and public sector organisations.
