The Hon Dr Andrew Leigh MP has been sworn in as Assistant Minister for Competition, Charities and Treasury, with responsibility for the charity sector and the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.

ACNC Commissioner the Hon Dr Gary Johns welcomed the announcement and said the ACNC looks forward to working with Dr Leigh.

“Australian charities make a vital contribution to the communities they serve, operating a vast range of programs across the country —providing relief following natural disasters, shelter to people who are homeless, education and health services, wildlife rescue and so much more,” Dr Johns said.

“There are around 60,000 charities on the Charity Register and we strive to support and promote a strong and robust sector.”
