Together, we are the world’s emergency responders.
When you see a major emergency in the news, it’s likely that the British Red Cross are helping those affected.
From earthquakes to armed conflict, from fires to floods, in the UK and abroad, our teams react quickly with humanitarian aid and kindness across 192 countries, applying local knowledge and global expertise to save lives and provide comfort.
Outside of emergencies, in the UK, our services reach people who are vulnerable to provide company, care and compassion. The British Red Cross works with the NHS to help people get home from hospital, make sure their fridges are stocked and regularly check in on them. We’re also the UK's largest independent provider of services for refugees, asylum seekers, vulnerable migrants and survivors of trafficking.
With multiple emergencies overseas and mounting crises at home, you can help us reach those most in need.
Please help support the British Red Cross’ work with an online donation today. Whatever you can give to our appeal will help us respond to emergencies, plan for future ones, and build strong, resilient communities in the UK and overseas.
