Register now: community meetings for the modernisation of the Charities Act

Published 1 February 2019

Update: The due date of the public consultation has been extended to 31 May, 2019.

The Charities Act 2005 is being modernised and your feedback is important. The Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) is running a series of 21 community meetings in March and April 2019 to explain the modernisation and seek your feedback.

The DIA policy team is running the meetings, which is separate from the Charities Services team that regulates charities. They look forward to hearing your thoughts and receiving submissions. The meetings will involve discussions on a public discussion document which will be released in late February 2019. The discussion document will cover a range of issues within scope of the review.

Although attending a community meeting gives the opportunity to ask questions in person, you don't have to attend a meeting to make a submission. More information on how to make a submission will be included in the discussion document(external link) in late February.

You can find more information on the community meetings, including dates, locations, and details how to register, on the DIA website(external link).
