COMMUNITY COUNCIL FOR AUSTRALIA

We are an independent member-based peak body dedicated to building flourishing communities by enhancing the extraordinary work of Australia’s not-for-profit sector. We do this by changing the way governments, communities and the not-for-profit sector relate to one another.In particular, this includes establishing a regulatory environment that works for community organisations - not against them. Find out more...

CCA CEO David Crosbie tells Pro Bono News that “Any doubt about the intention of the new ACNC commissioner to impose an ill-conceived restrictive agenda on all charities can now be dispelled with the ACNC submission into their review. The proposed new objects alone should be a wake-up call to every charity in Australia.

We should never underestimate the importance of collective voices writes CEO David Crosbie in Pro Bono News, as he sets a challenge for charities to be more active in 2018.

CCA encourages all in the charities and not-for-profit sector and the communites we serve to take an interest in the five year Review of the ACNC legislation.  CCA is preparing a submission in consultation with members.  

The most positive aspect of 2017 has been the way so many in the sector have come together to push back against those seeking to diminish it, writes CEO David Crosbie in Pro Bono News, 21 December 2018.

United with courage and the strength and optimism of our missions, we can build the just, fair, safe, inclusive, equal opportunity, creative, authentic, confident, kind, generous and compassionate Australia we want.

We will always raise our voices for our causes and our communities.  Join CCA members (again) in singing the 12 days of the Australia we want for Christmas…  Our very best wishes to you, your family and your community for hope, peace and fulfillment this Christmas and always.
