Principles of volunteering

Heart for Kids recognises the principles of volunteering created by Volunteering Australia in relation to our work with volunteers.

Volunteering benefits the community and the volunteer.

Volunteer work is unpaid.

Volunteering is always a matter of choice.

Volunteering is not compulsorily undertaken to receive pensions or government allowances.

Volunteering is a legitimate way in which citizens can participate in the activities of their community.

Volunteering is a vehicle for individuals or groups to address human, environmental and social needs.

Volunteering is an activity performed in the not for profit sector only.

Volunteering is not a substitute for paid work.

Volunteers do not replace paid workers nor constitute a threat to the job security of paid workers.

Volunteering respects the rights, dignity and culture of others.

Volunteering promotes human rights and equality.
