Our Purpose

Life-giving blood, plasma, transplantation and biological products for world-leading health outcomes. Through the power of humanity.

Lifeblood and the Red Cross

Lifeblood is governed by the Lifeblood Board, which includes our Chief Executive Shelly Park. 

Lifeblood is funded by Australian Governments to provide life-giving blood, plasma, transplantation and biological products for world leading health outcomes.

Lifeblood is an operating division of the Australian Red Cross Society.  Lifeblood and the humanitarian arm of the Australian Red Cross Society have separate executive structures and funding but share the values of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.  

Details of the Australian Red Cross Society and its humanitarian work are available on its website
