How you can help

You can do so directly through Red Cross. You can make a donation to support the work of our Emergency Services staff and volunteers as they prepare, respond and provide relief to individuals, households and communities during disasters.

Red Cross supports many people across Australia and around the world where the need is greatest.

You can support Red Cross' work by:

  • donating to our Disaster Relief and Recovery work which provides valuable support for our Emergency Services volunteer teams, supported by our dedicated staff, as they prepare, respond and provide support to communities during and after disasters. Your support assists us to help households and communities prepare, recruit, train, equip and maintain volunteers to be active as soon as a situation has occurred and to provide needed help. Whenever you see a Red Cross Emergency Service team in action your donation has been an important contribution to our work.
  • giving monthly, leaving a gift in your will or making a donation to general Red Cross every day work online or by calling 1800 811 700
  • giving blood
  • volunteering to assist in preparing for emergencies, responding and recovering after disasters.
  • being prepared for emergencies by following our four steps to prepare your household.
