We are a movement of people, we help Australians act for humanity.
Each in our own way, and together with communities and partners, we give each action a far greater impact.
When disasters strike, we’re on the ground and on the phones. We help people find shelter, find support, and find their loved ones.
We walk respectfully with First Nations peoples, towards a brighter and more equitable future.
When people come to Australia seeking safety, we help them make ends meet, settle into their new communities, and search for loved ones gone missing.
We help to promote respect for the laws of war, protecting humanity in times of war and preventing the misuse of the symbol that saves lives in armed conflict – the red cross emblem.
And, we stand with people for whom life has been unjust.
Bringing people and communities together in times of need and building on community strengths. We do this by mobilising the power of humanity.
Trusted as the leading humanitarian organisation, making a genuine difference in the lives of people and communities.
Australian Red Cross is a volunteer-based organisation that exists to reduce human suffering.
With 110 years’ experience and a community of 20,000+ members and volunteers, we act locally and connect globally to deliver what’s needed, when it’s needed most.
