Become a Red Cross member and Champion Humanity

Red Cross membership is for anyone with an eagerness to help others, a curiosity to know more and a desire to experience the power of humanity both individually or in a local community group.

As a Red Cross member you can learn about our work in Australia and around the world. Each month we'll email you inspiring stories about the people we help, and updates about current humanitarian issues and activities.

Red Cross members are guided by the fundamental principles of the Red Cross Red Crescent movement.
