Statements of intent

The Australian Volunteers Program is committed to diversity and inclusion. As part of this commitment, we've developed the following Statements of Intent that outline our vision for:

  • fostering a safe and equitable environment for people with diverse sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics. Download here.
  • ensuring gender equality and women's empowerment across the program. Download here.
  • valuing and promoting full participation of people with disabilities as volunteers, staff and partners. Download here.

These Statements of Intent are supported by a broader program of activities to produce real and tangible results.
