The work we do at Australian Red Cross is often complex and challenging; we support people experiencing extreme vulnerability and stress, we work in severe emergency and disaster situations, and we work with a multitude of partners, organisations and communities. How we do things is just as important as what we do.
The Australian Red Cross Ethical Framework is a practical, positive tool to support all Red Cross people – staff, members and volunteers. It provides a clear, shared understanding of the values and principles according to which we all, as Red Cross People, commit to behaving, and to which we all hold ourselves and others accountable.
All Red Cross people are required to sign their commitment to upholding the Ethical Framework.
