Together, we're Australia's Lifeblood

About The Australian Red Cross Lifeblood

Our name has changed. Because more lives depend on us.

We're more than blood. We're Lifeblood, formerly the Australian Red Cross Blood Service. Our new name reflects all the different ways we support Australian lives - through blood, organ matching, tissue typing, donated breast milk and more.

At Lifeblood, we're here for all Australians - all

  • Make a time to relax with us, it’s a lifesaving habit you can start today.
  • This week on Giving Life: A road trip ends in lifesaving transfusions, plasma donations help a young woman beat the odds, and a small town sets a big target to save lives.
  • Repost from @oliviamollyrogers - This afternoon I donated plasma for the first time. I never realised that it was as easy as donating whole blood, it just takes a little bit longer. I sat there reading my book while the wonderful nurses & the machine did all the work. 
I was reminded recently by the bushfires just how essential our blood donations are & if you are eligible it’s really such an easy (and free) thing to do to. According to the Red Cross we need a new donor every 5 minutes to keep up with the demand.. So please, jump online or on the @lifebloodau app & check your eligibility (there’s a questionnaire, it’s super easy!). Then if you are eligible, you can book in an appointment today ♥️ #donateblood #lifeblood #donatelife @redcrossau
  • We are incredibly grateful that so many generous Aussies have stepped forward and donated with us recently. 
If you’ve noticed a fully booked calendar at your local centre please don’t get discouraged. Australia needs a new blood donor every five minutes, and we’re asking that you make an appointment for February and beyond. 
Make a time to visit our centre now. Tap the link in our bio to donate.
