THE BRITISH RED CROSS SOCIETY

RCN 220949,

The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global network of volunteers, responding to natural disasters, conflicts and individual emergencies. We enable vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help people to recover and move on with their lives.

THE BRITISH RED CROSS SOCIETY

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.

What can my donations to the British Red Cross do?

  • £10 could provide a bag of animal feed to a family of 6 in Kenya to help them keep their livestock alive.
  • £24 could provide a set of warm clothes to a child in the UK who has lost everything in a fire.
  • £50 could help provide schoolchildren in Bangladesh training sessions on how to keep themselves and others safe when natural disasters strike.
  • £100 could provide someone facing hardship in the UK with a wheelchair for 5 weeks through the assistance programme.

Please note: The British Red Cross will use your donation wherever the need is greatest, both internationally and in the UK.
