Submission on ACNC Charity Regulations
Mar 15, 2021, 22:28 PM
The stated purpose of these changes is to target unlawful activity. However, most of the proposed changes do not relate to unlawful activity. The substantive changes largely relate to hypothetical future offences, staff and volunteer protest, and worse still, subjective judgements about whether a charity might engage in unlawful activity in the future. Anglicare Australia believes that the proposed regulations are too flawed to be resolved by amendments. We recommend they be withdrawn in their entirety.
