Humanitarian Roster
Prerequisites & Screening

The RedR Australia Standby Roster is open to both Australian and international applicants. RedR Australia is committed to represent the strength of diversity within our community and apply special measures to foster greater equality by supporting groups of people who face, or have faced, entrenched discrimination so they can have similar access to opportunities as others in the community. This is reflected in our indigenous reconciliation, localisation, disability and gender action plans found here.
