About the Glasgow Ice Centre SC050260

The Glasgow Ice Centre is a charity. The charitable status of GIC was granted by the OSCR on 3rd July 2020. On that day GIC became a new Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) under the Charities and Trustee Investments (Scotland) Act 2005. The OSCR is the charity regulator in Scotland and they decided that GIC met the charity test and passed the legal requirements for being a SCIO. 

The most important legal requirements for the charity test are GIC’s public benefit and charitable purposes. The GIC charitable purposes under the 2005 Act are:

“H – the advancement of public participation in sport” and 

“I – the provision of recreational facilities, or the organisation of recreational activities, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the persons for whom the facilities or activities are primarily intended.”

To meet these charitable purposes GIC has registered charitable objects. The GIC objects cover a wide range of leisure activities and ice rink sports, such as curling, hockey and skating. Our objectives seek to improve the health of the public, encourage and actively promote public participation in Ice Rink Sports, provide coaching and competitions and recreational facilities and organized leisure and sporting pursuits to improve the well-being and conditions of life for the community.
