About Us

Our Purpose

We exist to inspire active citizenship. This means all Australians may feel a sense of belonging and desire to participate in forging stronger, inclusive and resilient communities.

Recognising Inspiring Australians

Auspire manages and delivers a number of recognition programs with the objective of profiling leading citizens who are role models for us all.

These include the Australian of the Year Awards at a State and National level, Community Citizens of the Year at a local community level and Aussie of the Month in our primary schools.

They inspire us through their achievements and challenge us to make our own contribution to creating a better Australia through active citizenship.

Supporting harmony and inclusion for all

We believe that Australian citizenship is a shared identity that can unify us. We work with schools, communities and individuals to educate and support inclusion principles and capacity building with our range of programs and initiatives which:

  • Build social cohesion and harmony between Australians from all races, cultures and religions
  • Celebrate and promote aboriginal culture
  • Support and promote reconciliation
  • Aim to break down discrimination and encourage celebration of our diversity

Promoting Universal Values

We believe that no matter where each of our personal stories began, we share a common bond, which can unite all of us while respecting diversity. We encourage a sense of cohesion and belonging by promoting universal values such as fair go, mateship, inclusion and respect.

  • Fair go  – both in the way we apply ourselves and the belief in fairness, equity and equal opportunity for all
  • Mateship – the prevention of conflict, our spirit of egalitarianism, our openness and informality and compassion for those in need
  • Inclusion – the celebration of difference, the promotion of harmony, and the freedoms and rights we share
  • Respect –  having high regard for self, for others, the environment we live in and the rule of law.
