Become a Member of SCF

    The role of members
    •All members are subject to some of the general duties of charity trustees; specifically, members must:

    •  act in the interests of SCF, and
    •  seek, in good faith, to ensure SCF acts in a manner which is consistent with its charitable purposes.

    The Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (OSCR) recognises that members may not be in the day-to-day management and control of the administration of SCF. Therefore, in practice, when exercising powers such as considering changes to the constitution or taking part in elections of charity trustees, the members must act in the interests of SCF and seek to ensure that SCF continues to operate in line with its charitable purposes.

    • Only members can attend and vote at Annual General Meetings (AGMs). Attending such meetings will provide you with an oversight of the charity’s operations and will be an opportunity for you, along with other members, to elect charity trustees, scrutinise accounts and vote on particular matters
    • Anyone 16 or over living in the Strathglass Community Council area can become a member, and every new member helps SCF to better serve the community at large.
    • You are not required to commit any money
    • You are not liable for SCF’s debts
    • Employees of SCF are not eligible for membership.
