  7. The Care for Life: Suicide Prevention Association (the Association) will establish and maintain a separate Public Fund, to be administered by a separate management committee, for the specific purpose of the promotion of the prevention or control of behaviour that is harmful or abusive to human beings.  The fund shall be known as ‘Care For Life Suicide Prevention Fund’ to which all gifts of money or property for the principal activity of the organisation are made and any money received because of such gifts must be credited to its bank account that does not receive any other money or property. 
  8. The Association will inform the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) as soon as possible if:
  • it changes its principal activity; or
  • changes its name or the name of its public fund; or
  • if there is any change to the membership of the management committee of the public fund; or
  • if there is any departure from the model rules of the public fund as set out in the Guidelines to the Register of Harm Prevention Charitable Institutions; or if it, or its public fund, suffers any financial difficulties
