Submission to the reform of the ACNC secrecy provisions

Anglicare Australia supports a strong, independent and transparent ACNC. Transparency builds confidence in community services, and in the regulator itself. In this submission, we support reform to the secrecy provisions to generate greater transparency, including increased disclosure of finalised investigations and reasons for registration decisions. We recommend continuing to limit disclosures about new or ongoing investigations because of the potential risk to reputational damage and a fair investigation.
