The COSS network strongly endorsed the 2001 Charities Definition Inquiry recommendations as they were developed in full and detailed consultation with the sector and attracted widespread support. The COSS network would like to see the adoption of the 2001 Inquiry recommendations as part of this process. Our support for the statutory definition of charity rests strongly on the principles established by that Inquiry and we reaffirm its centrality to the current reform.
