Emergency Relief Partners
We are committed to supporting communities in times of crisis. Our partnerships with the Red Cross, The Salvation Army, RSPCA and The Kids Foundation will connect people to our partners in times of need.
Red Cross is always there for people in need, providing relief in times of crisis and care for the most vulnerable in Australia and around the world.
In times of conflict or natural disaster, Red Cross volunteers are committed to putting our humanitarian values to work, offering practical assistance and support at any time of the day or night - no questions asked.
The Salvation Army
One of the more distinctive denominations of the Christian Church, The Salvation Army operates as both a church and a network of social services, stemming from its worship of God and its Christian values. There are currently 1,650,000 Salvationists (members) in over 113 countries.
In a typical week, The Salvation Army will provide people in need with an estimated 100,000 meals. It provides beds to 5,000 homeless people, rehabilitation to 500 addicted and refuge to 400 victims of domestic abuse. It also provides counselling to several thousand people.
The KIDS foundation
Every day 5,000 Australian children are injured in accidents, 200 needing hospitalisation. Since 1993, The KIDS (Kids In Dangerous Situations) Foundation is devoted to establishing facilities and programs to help Australian children and teenagers with ongoing support and rehabilitation. It also runs camps for injured children as well as prevention and awareness programs.
The RSPCA cares for and protects animals by working hard to put the welfare of all creatures at the forefront of our minds through its many education programs and campaigns.
But educating the community about the humane treatment of animals is just one aspect of the RSPCA, which also runs shelters, animal hospitals, clinics, seminars and conducts thousands of inspections each year to investigate reports of animal neglect and cruelty.
