Save the Children welcomes decision not to abolish ACNC

Aid agency Save the Children has welcomed the Australian government’s decision to retain the independent national regulator of charities, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

“This is a very important decision, both for the public who contribute to charities and for the charities themselves. And to do this now removes any uncertainty,” Save the Children CEO Paul Ronalds said.

“It is pleasing the government has listened to voices from a range of charities, and acted in this way. Now we can get on with what we do best – supporting children and families in Australia and overseas.

“It’s in the public interest to keep the national regulator and ensure transparency and the integrity of charities. A well-regulated charities sector is in the interest of all.”

In making the announcement, Minister for Social Services, Christian Porter said it was intended that the ACNC will have a renewed focus on working with charities to help them to become more effective, and helping them to improve their governance.
