The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the largest humanitarian network in the world with a presence in almost every country. Australian Red Cross is one of the 186 members of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. The Vision of Australian Red Cross is to improve the lives of vulnerable people in Australia and internationally by mobilising the power of humanity.

The mission of all Red Cross university clubs is to promote the work of the Red Cross on campus, in accordance with our seven fundamental principles of the movement – Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality. By becoming a member of a Red Cross university club you meet new and diverse groups of people, all with a common interest to help others, become updated on local national and international humanitarian issues, help organise and host fundraising events, and expand your understanding of other culture, social and international issues. These clubs will provide you with access to Red Cross resources, volunteering opportunities, workshops and conferences and a range of different social activities. The UOW Red Cross Club is affiliated with Australian Red Cross (
