Our teddies provide comfort and help take people's minds off their worries. Trauma Teddies are lovingly hand-crafted – knitted, stuffed, sewn together and labelled – by Red Cross members and volunteers all over the country.
In 2018 alone, we distributed more than 50,000 Trauma Teddies to children across the country, thanks to more than 600 volunteer knitters.
The Trauma Teddy program wouldn’t function without the generosity of our knitters and amazing volunteers. If you enjoy a yarn, a cup of tea and knitting, the we would love to hear from you.
