About Us

The staff and volunteers at the Kempsey office of the Australian Red Cross support communities throughout the Mid North Coast. We provide:

  • Telecross: a daily telephone call for older people to check on your wellbeing. The volunteer will check to see that you are well and provide a friendly voice to wake up to each morning.
  • Community Visitors Scheme: supports you to improve your social connections and connect with your community for your wellbeing. An outing or a chat over a cup of coffee with a caring and friendly volunteer could become a highlight of your week, and give you the confidence to meet new people.
  • Community Engagement & Development: in partnership with local Aboriginal communities, we design and deliver projects that aim to empower people to pursue their goals, and to be culturally appropriate and accessible.
  • Emergency Services: supporting people at evacuation centres and in the community during and after a disaster. Our volunteers are also essential in helping communities prepare for emergencies and supporting communities to recover long after a disaster has past.
