Corporate partnerships

Australian Red Cross is a powerful partner for business.

Partnerships are critical to our work.

We cannot solve problems in isolation.

Solving complex social challenges requires cross-sector commitment, expertise and innovation. Together with our partners we address and alleviate hardship in our communities in Australia and in the Asia Pacific.

Working together we can achieve measurable social impact through shared value, capacity building and cause-driven programs.

On behalf of all of the communities we support, we thank our corporate partners for their solidarity.
