Welcome! Thanks for your interest in volunteering.

Volunteering expands your skills and experience, increases your employability and is a way to stay active and engaged with the community. It's also a way for you to give back to the community and help people who need a hand.

Australian Red Cross has a duty of care to all our employees and communities we support. This extends to ensuring we're keeping everyone as safe as we can from Covid-19.

At Red Cross, this means we need all our people to be up to date* with vaccinations against Covid-19. Verifying your vaccination status is an important part of our recruitment process. We'll ask you to acknowledge you understand our vaccination position. We do this to ensure you're aware of our requirements and can decide what’s right for you.

At any stage, and for any reason, you may withdraw your application from consideration.

Experience tell us that things can change rapidly with Covid-19. ATAGI may change their definitions. Your circumstances may change. If that happens, we'd welcome you reconsidering Red Cross as an organisation you'd like to be a part of.

* As per latest definitions by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) or who have a medical exemption based on ATAGI guidelines before applying.
