Communities can get through anything together
At the British Red Cross, we recognise the power of a connected community.
From being there for people who are isolated, to ensuring everyone can access the help they need, since the Covid-19 crisis hit the UK, our volunteers and staff have been at the heart of communities across the UK, delivering kindness and supporting the people who need it most, no matter who or where they are.
Across the country, thanks to people like you, the British Red Cross has…
- Reached more than 710,000 people through our emergency response services (including house fires, flooding, and our Covid-19 response)
- Supported 590,000 people at vaccination centres
- Made over 12,000 medicine deliveries to people who were unable to pick up their prescriptions
