Submissions

This submission briefly summarises the CCA policy position in relation to the Productivity Commission Draft Report on Childcare and Early Childhood Learning.

CCA has not focused on many of the issues relating to Childcare and Early Childhood Learning. This submission is really about how the Productivity Commission Draft Report may impact on charities and not-for-profit organisations across Australia.

This outlines Community Council for Australia’s (CCA) response to the Options Paper on proposed replacement arrangements for charities if the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is disbanded.

This is CCA’s fifth submission in relation to the establishment of the ACNC.  It is important to note that this response has been prepared in consultation with the membership of CCA  and key organisations in the not-for-profit sector.   . 

In response to the Treasury's Discussion Paper on Unclaimed Funds, Community Council for Australia provided a submission to Treasury and met with Treasury Officials to advocate for the diversion of unclaimed moneys into a capital fund that supports viable investment options in the not-for-profit sector. This addiional capital pool for the not-for-profit sector will deliver real economic and social benefits for governments and our communities in the longer term. 

Retain the ACNC to build sector transparency and efficiency
