Biographies

Many community programs grew from the hospital services - Volunteer Motor Corps (now Transport Services), Home Hospitals, Rest Homes and Amelioration - of World War I. From 1927, the Red Cross Auxiliaries became a chief peace-time activity of the Victorian Division. In World War II, remedial activities became known as Rehabilitation, and a Welfare Committee arose. Welfare then became associated with Social Work, which mainly focused on soldiers until the 1970s, when it turned to disadvantaged groups. In the 1980s, Hospital and Community Services encompassed many of these activities. In 1995, this area became more specialised, becoming Community Programs in 2002.

    Series: Australian Red Cross Victoria Archives
    The Archive & Heritage Collection of the Australian Red Cross, Victoria holds a wide range of records and artefacts relating to the organization in Victoria - in line with its Mission - to ensure that items and records that document the history of the Australian Red Cross in Victoria are retained, kept securely and made accessible for research. The Collection includes Australian Red Cross publications, books of news-clippings from 1915-1996, minutes of meetings (Divisional, Regional and special purpose committees to regional and rural branches), annual reports, a range of documents, reports & letters, some special collections (photograph albums, scrap books) of prominent people and collections of miscellaneous papers and ephemera. Two traveling exhibitions, 'Being There' (highlighting the activities in different eras) and 'Red Cross Remembers WW2' have been mounted and toured many regional areas of the State. A project to record the location of Australian Red Cross Victoria Branch records retained locally or held in other repositories was begun in early 2004.
