About Red Cross
Australian Red Cross is part of the world's largest voluntary humanitarian organisation. Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies operate in 190 countries. Our Movement has two international governing bodies - the International Federation of Red Cross Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC).
In everything we do, our volunteers, members and staff are guided by seven Fundamental Principles - Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality.
There are many ways young people can get involved with Red Cross.
Take a look at some of our community fundraising activities which are fun and educational, and give young people the chance to interact with their local community and gain social awareness about issues facing vulnerable Australians.
