Charity Sector Town Hall Meetings

The Australian Government values the expertise and the contributions of the charity sector highly. We know how vital Australian charities are in building stronger, fairer communities that are better places to live.

We hosted town hall meetings with the charity sector last year to share ideas on how we can rebuild community trust and engagement, and to reinforce our commitment to partner with the sector. 

One year in, we are seeking to build on the Government’s partnership with Australian charities and maintain ongoing engagement through our town hall forums.

We're inviting charities to be part of our work to strengthen the sector by joining one of the sessions in our next town hall series.

The Government has initiated a Productivity Commission review of philanthropy and we’ve started work on a Blueprint for strengthening the capacity and capability of Australian charities.

These upcoming town hall conversations will be an opportunity to discuss the work being done and to get your views on priority areas for reform or support.
