In recent times, the National Trust for Scotland has been subject to a number of reviews of its governance and organisational structure. The most recent and, in terms of the Bill, the most significant, is the Strategic Review of the National Trust for Scotland, which was led by The Rt Hon Sir George Reid.
The Reid review took place in 2009-10 and the report of its findings, Fit for Purpose, was published in August 2010. The remit of the review was to carry out a robust examination of the charity’s health. The review acknowledged the importance of adhering to good governance values and set out some key principles that were adapted from the Nolan principles and guidance from OSCR and the NCVO.
These are the new National Trust for Scotland Governance Regulations (2014)
