On the 13th July we received confirmation from OSCR (the Scottish Charity Regulator) that our application to set up a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) had been approved. The new charity will continue to be known as Mountain Aid although our registered name is now Mountain Aid (SCIO). This is only part of the conversion process as we now need to wind up the old Mountain Aid charity and transfer the assets to the new charity. Again this is something that needs approval by OSCR so it will take a bit of time to work through the process. Our new charity number is SC05112.
