You lift people up through their toughest times 

When there’s help to be given, we know where to start. But we can’t do it alone. 

Your donation to Australian Red Cross transforms lives. It helps us bring families back together when they’ve been separated by war, conflict or disaster. It gives young Australians who’ve been caught up in the justice system a second chance. It breaks down barriers for those facing disadvantage in our communities – and so much more. 

Tax Appeal 2021 - Let's Get Started

Your donation will help Red Cross support the most vulnerable people in our local communities, here in Australia and across the Asia Pacific.

It starts with a second chance

“I need help.” Caught up in the justice system, Chris decided that he wanted to create a better life for himself and his family. With support from Red Cross social worker Carol, he overcame his addiction, earned his car and forklift licence to improve his employment opportunities, and was home in time to welcome a very cute new arrival – his youngest baby.

It starts with a search

Every day, our tracing team works with our worldwide network to find missing loved ones. They search through records, knock on doors, and go into the places others can’t. It’s a magical and powerful moment when we can reconnect a family: when we can tell someone we’ve found their parents after years, when we can deliver a letter written by someone in the middle of a refugee camp, or that first phone call that brings so much joy.

It starts with a licence to drive

Before earning her licence Sam would walk hours each day to take her children to and from school. The young single mum worked with a Red Cross mentor driver to build her confidence and work towards completing her hours at times that suited her. It’s changed everything for her family, giving them freedom, flexibility and security they didn’t have before.
