Community Council for Australia welcomes Labor announcement

The Community Council for Australia (CCA) has welcomed the Australian Labor Party’s announcement that it would establish an Office for the Not-For-Profit Sector and, if elected, would implement other recommendations from the Productivity Commission’s report which was released in February. CCA chair and CEO of World Vision, Reverend Tim Costello, said “This was a key recommendation of the Productivity Commission and will play an important role in having consistency across the nation and across government. This is the first time that the sector has had a single reference point within Government.”
