Not-for-profit Reform

The Not-for-profit reform will deliver smarter regulation, reduce red tape and improve transparency and accountability for the sector.

The Not-for-profit sector is the focus of federal reform with a broad-ranging scope of changes to be unveiled across the industry over the next 18 months. Hood Sweeney is proud of its involvement in the NFP sector over the past thirty years and recognises the enormous contribution made by the sector to the Australian economy and its social fabric. We look forward to keeping you updated with the changes and their implications as they unfold.
