The AVID program recognises the considerable contribution that volunteer dependants make in-country while supporting a volunteer on assignment. Accordingly, limited financial support is available to support partners and volunteers with children who are undertaking an assignment with a duration of 12 months or more. Should you wish to apply for dependant support, you must indicate this in your application.
To be considered for dependant allowances, you must satisfy initial requirements and be able to demonstrate that you have been in a relationship for at least one year. Your dependants must be either an Australian citizen, permanent resident or New Zealand citizen permanently residing in Australia to be eligible.
