A focus on wellbeing

Australian Unity Foundation has recognised Palms Australia’s programs as a good way to promote wellbeing globally and in Australia.

Leading the way

Our dignity as human beings relies on all of us being both givers and receivers. Shared knowledge and skills can improve all of our lives and it is so important to achieving solidarity that we do not allow our judgements about good development, no matter how well researched, to direct the priorities of receiving communities.


To evangelise is to make the Kingdom of God present in our world … to eliminate the structural causes of poverty and to promote the integral development of the poor. - Pope Francis (Joy of the Gospel 176, 188)
