Common Languages Guide

The Common Languages Guide outlines a generally accepted glossary of terms and definitions widely used in the volunteering sector. Volunteering Australia, as the national peak body for volunteering in the country, encourages the use of the Common Languages Guide for consistency across the sector.

Please note: The guidance provided, including the application, phrasing and capitalisation of words, are deliberate.

The Common languages Guide will be reviewed every six-months.
