The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission welcomes an Administrative Appeals Tribunal decision that endorses the ACNC’s approach to determining charities’ eligibility for registration as a public benevolent institution.
Women’s Life Centre Inc. has been a registered charity since 1 July 2017 under two other subtypes − advancing health and advancing social or public welfare.
