It's people like you that help us to help others.
Our work is diverse and far reaching, and would not be possible without the efforts of our amazing members, volunteers, staff and supporters.
We are always on the look out for energetic and caring people to volunteer for us and join in our humanitarian efforts.
How you can volunteer
Every part of our organisation relies on volunteers to make it work – from our retail shops through to recovery work and refugee support. Imagine yourself as a team member, responding to emergencies throughout the country, making someone's day by bringing them a hot meal, helping former refugees feel comfortable as new Kiwis or landing your dream job in the fashion industry because of your volunteer work at one of our shops.
Our volunteers make a difference in many New Zealanders' lives every day.
Become a branch member
While everyone who joins us becomes a member of the wider Red Cross family, you can also become a member of your local branch. We have over 80 branches throughout New Zealand. As a branch member, you get voting rights and so can have more of a say in the governance of New Zealand Red Cross.
Fundraise for us
We love our fundraisers!
Every day, Kiwis are helping people here and overseas by fundraising for us. Every dollar raised goes towards supporting the work we do in your community.
