Charity Subtype: Promoting Reconciliation, Mutual Respect and Tolerance Australian Individuals.

When the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission register an organisation, its charity ‘subtypes’ are also publicly registered.

These reflect the category of that organisation’s charitable purpose, which is what its activities will work towards achieving.

Each subtype has a specific meaning under the law.

The subtype for discussion today is promoting reconciliation, mutual respect and tolerance between groups of individuals that are in Australia.

This is another purpose introduced by the Charities Act.

Promoting reconciliation, mutual respect and tolerance between groups of individuals that are in

Australia may include:

• Promoting harmony and reducing conflict between people from different races, religions or belief systems

• Eliminating discrimination and promoting equality

• Promoting restorative justice and other forms of conflict resolution or reconciliation, and

• Mediating, conciliating or reconciling those involved in dispute or conflict.

Importantly, the groups of individuals referred to in this subtype must be in Australia.
