Other recreation activity
Recreation and social activities undertaken only as a means of furthering a charitable purpose – Includes providing recreational activities to people with a disability who would otherwise be unable to participate in them and providing social activities to elderly people suffering from social isolation. Example: an organisation provides a social gathering for newly arrived refugees in a community to assist them to feel at home and to meet others in the community. Another organisation provides social activities for elderly people who live alone, to reduce their social isolation.
Integrity, honesty and unbiased assessment are at the core of Giving Guide’s mission. The charity sector is important to the economy and culture of Australia, We believe independently assessing the accountability, transparency and effectiveness of the sector beyond what is currently available is important to it's future.
Giving Guide anticipates enhancing the level of governance and transparency in the Australian charity sector. An independent charity advisor would benefit the sector by helping charities consider exceeding the existing governance standards of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) to the benefit of donors.
