Our concerns about proposed changes to the governance standards for registered charities

Our submission to the Charities Consultation @Treasury.gov.au expresses our concerns about proposed changes to the governance standards for registered charities.

We consider the proposed changes are at odds with the Strengthening for Purpose: Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission Legislation Review 2018 (the 2018 Review), which recommended the repeal of Governance Standard 3 because it “is not appropriate as a governance standard”.

We are concerned that these additions would create significant legal uncertainty, and unduly restrict the legitimate activities of charities—to the detriment of those who seek assistance from charities and civil society more broadly.
