Supporting children and families

Red Cross helps people get their family's health and wellbeing on track. By supporting vulnerable parents, Red Cross helps them support their kids at the most vulnerable and important times of their lives.

Red Cross believes that every child deserves the best start in life. Research tells us that the early years of childhood are especially influential on a child's outcomes later in life. This means that every child should have access to healthy food, secure housing, stable positive parenting, learning opportunities and friendships.

How we help

Red Cross works to build parent's confidence, improve their health and nutrition and link them with friends and community.
