Make your challenge count for people in crisis in the UK

One in five people in the UK say they experience feelings of loneliness – this figure will likely rise. During the pandemic, and over the past few months, many more people have started to feel lonely – we know that stress, change and isolation can all trigger loneliness.

That’s why we’re working hard to make sure that no one feels like they have nowhere to turn. 

The British Red Cross and Team GB hope to inspire the nation to come together and look out for each other. Together we will celebrate the power of kindness and support people who need us most in our communities.

From offering emotional and practical support through our coronavirus support line, to helping someone coming home after a hospital stay, our teams are working with people across the UK, whoever and wherever they are.

With your support, we can continue our vital work to support people in crisis in the UK, and to build stronger, more resilient communities.
