The program

Red Cross has been responding to emergencies and providing humanitarian assistance in Australia since 1914. We are committed to strengthening and extending our emergency aid services to assist all Australians to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies.

The opportunity

REDiSupport Team Members belong to a multi-skilled team of volunteers, who assist individuals and communities across the emergency management cycle by:

  • helping people prepare for possible future emergency events (preparedness);
  • providing relief during emergency events (response), and
  • assisting in the aftermath of an event (recovery).

In times of emergency volunteers may be requested to assist in their local area, and across Tasmania. There may also be opportunities to travel to emergency-affected areas around Australia. Team members will receive training and exercise opportunities to build the capacity to organise, lead and deliver these services in the field.

The impact

As an Emergency Services volunteer, you’ll help people to be better prepared, better connected to each other, and more resilient when emergencies happen. Red Cross will ensure you have the training, ongoing support, and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
