Australian Community Workers Association Australian Community Workers Association

We want to hear from you! We have conducted an initial review of the Australian Community Workers Code of Ethics and now we are looking for feedback from the broader ACWA membership and other key stakeholders.

ACWA’s Code of ethics is the document that lays down the explicit expectations of community work professionals. All ACWA members agree to work to the Code of ethics and must adhere to the code in every aspect of their professional life.

We are interested in all feedback (good or otherwise) and welcome your views.

When you review the consultation document, you may wish to consider:

  • Readability
  • Clarity
  • Anomalies
  • Practicality
  • Modernity
  • New inclusions

We thank those who have already provided constructive feedback, particularly around inclusive language.


Please send your responses to with COE review in the subject line.

Feedback round closes: 31 October 2021.
