COMMUNITY COUNCIL FOR AUSTRALIA

 

We are an independent member-based peak body dedicated to building flourishing communities by enhancing the extraordinary work of Australia’s not-for-profit sector. We do this by changing the way governments, communities and the not-for-profit sector relate to one another.  In particular, this includes establishing a regulatory environment that works for community organisations - not against them. Find out more...

I think it is important to start any discussion about coronavirus with a little perspective.

Each year in Australia, influenza kills on average 3,500 people. The best predictor of who is susceptible is age – 3,000 of these deaths are people aged over 50. Death rates for influenza in Australia are below 0.2 per cent of people who contract the disease. Estimates suggest close to half a million people die each year from influenza worldwide. 

As Community Council for Australia begins the work of developing a charities sector blueprint, the issue of how innovation is applied within the charities sector is one of the critical considerations, writes CCA CEO David Crosbie in Pro Bono News, 20 February 2020.

CCA News, Summer 2020 looks at charities and unprecendented times.  It has never been more important for us to celebrate that so many Australians have the opportunity to be part of a charity, part of making a difference, part of the solutions.  Also includes CCA's Submission to the Federal Budget; fundraising regulation; ACNC; advocacy and work to advance forward planning for our sector.

Business as usual is no longer going to be enough for governments, neither will it be for charities. If we hope to grow in strength and effectiveness we will need to support collective action for change, writes CCA CEO David Crosbie in Pro Bono News, 6 February 2020.

CCA's Submission to the Federal Budget outlines nine measures the Community Council for Australia (CCA) believes will significantly strengthen Australia’s not-for-profit (NFP) sector and drive real economic savings for government over the coming financial year and beyond.
