The Singapore Red Cross (SRC) began on 30 September 1949 as part of the British Red Cross Society. On 6 April 1973, the Singapore Red Cross was officially incorporated by the Parliament of Singapore. It was appointed as the National Blood Donor Recruiter by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) in 2001.
The SRC is governed by a 19-member Council headed by a Chairman who is appointed by the President of the Republic of Singapore, the Patron of the SRC. The Council is responsible for pursuing the objective of the SRC as laid down by the Act of Parliament and its Constitution. The Council has four oversight committees providing the relevant advice and expertise; namely the Finance and Investment, Audit, Corporate Governance and Nomination and Human Resource and Compensation Committees.
The general management of the SRC is overseen by the Management Committee, headed by the Secretary General / Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the SRC. Implementation of the policies and directives laid down by the Council is done by the Secretariat which is headed by the Secretary General / CEO.
The Secretariat is organised into three divisions; Operations, Administration and the Red Cross Youth.
