The Charities Regulator’s stakeholder forum was created in 2023 as a direct channel of communication with charity trustees to ensure the views and feedback of volunteers from across the sector, who are responsible for overseeing the operations of charities, are considered when the Charities Regulator is developing policies, guidance and regulatory materials.
While the forum will operate on a pilot basis for the first year, the Charities Regulator sees it as a long-term initiative.

In addition to the charity trustees and representatives of the Charities Regulator, observers from government departments and other state agencies will be invited to attend meetings where there are matters on the agenda relevant to their area(s) of responsibility.
