Community Policy > Charity
New Zealand is a generous society and New Conservative will work to protect people’s charitable initiatives and activity.
New Conservative will protect and encourage charitable activities and will:
· Protect Schools/marketplaces/groups fundraising from unnecessary bureaucracy
· Amend current legislation to protect Volunteers from prosecution under the health and safety except in cases of criminal activity or gross negligence
· Review the charities commission to ensure that the board uses clear and impartial objectives in determining the status of organisations/groups
· Apply normal corporate tax rules when a charitable enterprise engages in commercial activity in competition with other businesses.
