Our Vision and Values

The Launceston Oxfam Group carries the same vision and values of Oxfam Australia.

Our Vision: A FAIR world in which people control their own lives, their basic rights are achieved and the environment is sustained.

Oxfam Australia aims to increase the number of people who have a sustainable livelihood, access to social services, an effective voice in decisions, equal rights and status, and safety from conflict and disaster.

The work of Oxfam Australia is a partnership through which Australians enable poor and marginalised people to control their own development, achieve equality, exercise their basic rights and ensure the environment is healthy and sustainable.

Our Values: The Group exists with Oxfam Australia to contribute to a fairer world to overcome poverty and injustice - challenging and changing the structural causes of poverty and empowering people to control their lives and achieve their human rights with long-term changes and sustainability.

Oxfam Australia wants to be -
  • innovative, dynamic and bold;
  • compassionate and committed;
  • authoritative and influential;
  • transparent, accountable and ethical;
  • independent and secular; and
  • effective, efficient and capable.
