Commenting on concerns
By law the ACNC cannot speak publicly about the circumstances of any charity, apart from referring to information already published on the Charity Register. This includes whether or not a concern about a charity has been raised with the ACNC, or whether the ACNC is investigating a concern or allegations made about a charity. This also means that once a concern is raised, the ACNC cannot keep the person who raised the concern informed about any investigation we may be undertaking. This approach is a requirement of the secrecy provisions in the ACNC Act which bind the ACNC Commissioner and their staff.
