Research demonstrates Palms’ commitment to best practice

“Palms Australia has always prided itself on critical self-evaluation.” Mr O’Halloran said. “This research demonstrates our honest reflection that if volunteering is to be an appropriate response to global injustice, it must reflect the changing and complex realities of host 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)
