The Law Commission is seeking community views on the legal structure

The Law Commission is seeking community views on the legal structure and rules that should govern community organisations.

This is a great opportunity to get involved in the way your community is run. Many of our mental health services are run by Charitable Trusts and will be impacted by any changes to legislation – for better or for worse. If you have a stake in these services – as a person using them or as a person working for them, we encourage you to get yourself along.


  • The century old Incorporated Societies Act 1908 is in need of major reform and updating.
  • It doesn’t relate to the needs of the thousands of existing Incorporated Societies and Charitable Trusts.
  • This important review affects Charitable Trusts also because the Commission is considering whether a new Incorporated Societies Act should also replace incorporation under the Charitable Trusts Act.
  • The Community Sector has an opportunity for input into the Law Commission’s review and to influence the recommendations it makes to the Government.

WHEN: Thursday 8th September, 10am – 12.30pm
WHERE: Waitakere Community Resource Centre, 8 Ratanui St, Henderson (up the service-lane behind National Bank)

Tea & Co ffee will be provided. No carparking available onsite
