Volunteer Code of Conduct

Child Protection Policy

Photos and Stories Policy

Gift Giving Policy

Cancellation Policy

Habitat’s insurance will cover you in the event of emergency medical situations during the build week, however we strongly recommend you take out an additional travel insurance policy to cover you for other occurrences, including cancellation of flights and trip, loss of personal effects and changes to your travel plans.

Unfortunately Habitat for Humanity Australia is unable to provide you with any medical advice as we are not trained professionals. Please see your local GP for advice on vaccinations or any travel medication you may need to take.
