Department of Internal Affairs - Charities

The Department of Internal Affairs will investigate any person or organisation who is engaged in conduct in breach of the Charities Act or where there is serious wrongdoing in connection with a registered charity.

Internal Affairs is able to initiate its own inquiries, or act in response to information or complaints provided to us.

Complaints must be submitted in writing to Internal Affairs and should include as much information as possible to enable Internal Affairs to effectively assess the complaint and decide the appropriate course of action. You can use our online complaints form on our website.
