Understanding charities and supporting them to become familiar with and meet their obligations to the ACNC in an accessible way is fundamental to the way the ACNC operates. We aim to demonstrate best practice in our stakeholder engagement as well as innovation in the way we communicate with and seek feedback from charities.

This framework sets out:

  • our reasons for stakeholder engagement
  • the values and principles that underpin our approach
  • the scope of this work, and
  • our approach to undertaking consultation with stakeholders.

Engagement Forums

The ACNC values engaging with and listening to the views of stakeholders. We currently have two key forums, the Adviser Forum and the Sector Forum, through which we seek:

  • Representative view from the charity sector

  • Feedback on key policy, guidance and tools the ACNC develops for the sector

  • Feedback on the ACNC’s self-assessment under the Governments Regulatory Performance Framework.

Each of the forums are convened twice a year. We publish the charters and minutes of each of the forums here:
