Trauma Teddy – Knit for Red Cross

Our teddies provide comfort and help take people's minds off their worries. Trauma Teddies are lovingly hand-crafted – knitted, stuffed, sewn together and labelled – by Red Cross members and volunteers all over the country.

With thanks to more than 600 volunteer knitters, we have distributed over a million teddies since 1990.

The Trauma Teddy program wouldn’t function without the generosity of our knitters and amazing volunteers. If you enjoy a yarn, a cup of tea and knitting, the we would love to hear from you.

While those knitting for charity come from throughout the community, every Trauma Teddy must pass a strict quality inspection before distribution. This is undertaken by Red Cross Trauma Teddy Coordinators. To find out more, contact your local office.
