By becoming a Disaster Response Alliance partner, your business can make a positive difference to the lives of people in New Zealand or internationally when a disaster strikes.

When a disaster strikes, we are there. Our specialist volunteer disaster response teams work alongside emergency management partners to provide welfare and practical support to help affected communities and individuals.

We provide recovery support and build community resilience in the longer term, too. Our work delivers practical and psychosocial support to help communities prepare, respond and recover from unexpected events.

New Zealand Red Cross' Disaster Response Alliance partners provided critical support to our response and relief efforts in Tonga after the volcanic eruption and tsunami on 15 January 2022.
