About the organisation

Organisation Name : Benevolence Australia

In 2008, a group of dedicated women came together to discuss the absence and need for a welcoming,
safe space, free of judgement, discrimination and ethnic divide. They visualised a place where the
spirit is nourished, minds are challenged, and where a diverse community can come together, inspired
with the values of social consciousness and service. Thus, Benevolence Australia was established.

Since its inception more than ten years ago, Benevolence Australia has established a strong foundation
of service, community presence and effective organisational structure. The female-only board
comprises of a mix of highly talented, dedicated and professional women who provide a balanced and
responsible approach to the vision and value of each program the organisation delivers. The
Benevolence Australia ethos encourages all staff, volunteers, community members and participants to
be positive and active contributors to their local and wider communities, promoting a culture of
diversity, yet one of inclusion.

Benevolence Australia continues to remain focused on building upon a vision of service to the
Australian community and the organisation offers a range of Community and Educational Programs to
foster social harmony, cohesion and connectedness.
