We are a movement of people, we help Australians act for humanity.
Each in our own way, and together with communities and partners, we give each action a far greater impact.
When disasters strike, we’re on the ground and on the phones. We help people find shelter, find support, and find their loved ones.
We walk respectfully with First Nations peoples, towards a brighter and more equitable future.
When people come to Australia seeking safety, we help them make ends meet, settle into their new communities, and search for loved ones gone missing.
We help to promote respect for the laws of war, protecting humanity in times of war and preventing the misuse of the symbol that saves lives in armed conflict – the red cross emblem.
And, we stand with people for whom life has been unjust.
Bringing people and communities together in times of need and building on community strengths. We do this by mobilising the power of humanity.
Trusted as the leading humanitarian organisation, making a genuine difference in the lives of people and communities.
Red Cross mobilises the power of humanity to bring people and communities together in times of need and builds on community strengths.
These protective symbols are central to the laws of war.
They mean Don't shoot - we are not part of the fight in every language.
