Our plan for FY19 puts us in position to achieve our ambitious outcomes, and respond to the shifts that are occurring around us.
There are opportunities, such as 55% of Australians wanting to do more good in their community. There are also threats, including more natural disasters and growing vulnerability. We also have options to explore. We’re looking at ways to build community empowerment and mobilisation, creating better two-way relationships with our supporters, and understanding the changing nature of international humanitarian work.
A major part of our work over the next year is continuing to deliver great outcomes for those we care about through our existing programs and services, working with the great Red Cross volunteers, Members and supporters involved with us. This work includes:
- providing everyday help to everyone, supporting Australian communities to be strong and for all people to feel included, through our community services;
- our help in emergencies, encouraging people to take practical steps to prepare and protect what’s precious to them; and,
- our assistance to migrants in transition, supporting refugees, asylum seekers, immigration detainees and other people who are vulnerable as a result of migration.
Our Annual Plan highlights priority activities we will focus on throughout the year, alongside our everyday work, and shows how we’ll keep testing and trailing new ways of working and scaling-up promising initiatives. We are proud to share this yearly plan for the first time in FY19.
We’ve broken the plan down for you below, so you can get an overview of our priorities for this year. We want all our supporters to understand how we’re working towards our ambitious 2020 outcomes and how all Australians can play a part in helping us get there.
