The coronavirus outbreak is the greatest global health emergency in living memory. It is affecting the way we all go about our daily lives.

In these uncertain times, small acts of kindness can make a huge difference.

For over 150 years, the British Red Cross has supported people in the UK in times of crisis. The ongoing, ever-changing situation concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is no exception. Our network of incredible staff and volunteers means we are uniquely placed to reach people in fearful, uncertain times. 

But it’s the generosity of our supporters that enables our work to happen quickly and efficiently. We rely on your support to keep us going. With your help, we’ll continue to provide vital humanitarian, individual support for the most vulnerable, and those who fall through the gaps.

There is someone who needs you today. Your donation can change their life.
