Abolition of the Charities Commission
As of 1 July 2012, the Charities Commission has been wound up and its core functions have been moved to the Department of Internal Affairs. These functions include education, registration, monitoring and investigation. A new board has been appointed to make decisions about registration and de-registration.
A press release from the Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector sets out that there will be no substantive changes for registered charities or for those organisations seeking registration.
