Overview: SRC Volunteer Management Policy
The Society implemented a Volunteer Management System that is open to all to sign-up and choose your affiliation with Singapore Red Cross as a volunteer or with two types of paid membership (Life and Subscribing) as part of the registration process. Both volunteers and members have the same access to the volunteering and training opportunities that Society has to offer.
You are here because you want to make a change. And you are at the right place. Volunteering is more than helping to improve and impact the lives of the needy. It is also about bringing some much needed cheer and relief to them. It is through the time and care of ordinary and altruistic people like you that we can do extraordinary things!
Why volunteer with Singapore Red Cross
Expand your skill set and gain hands-on experiences by volunteering and giving back to society.
Meet new friends and connect with like-minded people
Giving back to the community makes everyone feel good!
It’s a great way to fill your spare time meaningfully if you’re recently retired or not working
Improve your language and communication skills.
If you are a new member, you will attend a Volunteer Induction Session which prepares you to volunteer and learn more about the Red Cross Movement and our services. You will get to meet other new members too!
Anyone can volunteer. It doesn’t matter what your skills, experience or background are, or how much time you can give. Some volunteer work can even be done from home, at your own pace!
If you would like to be more involved with Singapore Red Cross and experience the power of humanity, sign up to be a member! Membership to Singapore Red Cross is open to anyone who adheres to the principles of Red Cross Movement and the Constitution of Singapore Red Cross Society. Members have the responsibility of ensuring a well functioning society by serving in various capacities within the Council, operating committees, and/or advisory panels.
Members/volunteers will be invited to attend Volunteer Induction in order to be equipped with the knowledge of the Red Cross Movement to serve the community with confidence and professionalism. No fees are required for this training.
The Singapore Red Cross also offers memberships to volunteers and members of the public who wish to officially become a part of the SRC society.
