Law reform and advocacy

Campaign objective

To reduce red tape and improve the legal framework for community organisations.

Focus areas

PILCH’s campaign work is focussed on the need to:

  • establish a 'one-stop shop' independent, national regulator;
  • improve the regime for Victoria's non-profit incorporated associations, and
  • modernise the definition of a charity and simplify related taxation concession categories.

We also keep watching briefs, and are able to comment on, law reform areas with significant impacts on the not-for-profit sector, such as occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity laws, corporations law, and fundraising regulation.

For further information, please contact Juanita Pope.

Submissions and events

To achieve our campaign and law reform goals we write law reform and policy submission, and participate in events and workshops.
