The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. To the Red Cross, every crisis is personal. From floods to loneliness, it’s not the scale of the crisis that matters.
We help more than a million vulnerable people in the UK every year, and many more around the world, by helping them prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities.
Every year we respond to thousands of emergencies in the UK, playing a key role supporting the emergency services. From floods and heavy snow to house fires and transport accidents, we are ready to respond.
We train around 370,000 people in first aid in the UK every year, preparing them to cope with accidents and emergencies in the home, at work or out and about. Our volunteers also provide first aid cover at thousands of public events across the country.
We help thousands of people across the UK keep their independence by providing short-term support after a hospital stay - or by preventing admission in the first place. Our service include care in the home, medical equipment, transport and therapeutic care.
