We help anyone, anywhere in the UK and around the world, get the support they need if crisis strikes.
British Red Cross is a volunteer-led, humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We help vulnerable people, in the UK and overseas, to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And, when the crisis is over, we help people recover and move on with their lives.
With the help of regular donors, the British Red Cross supports millions of people to cope with all kinds of crises – from natural disasters and conflicts, to individual injuries and other personal challenges.
In the UK, we provide emergency response services for a range of crises and we run first aid training courses nationwide, equipping people with skills that could save a life in an emergency. We also provide support at home to those who may need help, such as people returning home from hospital or struggling to live independently. In 2018 alone, this support at home service helped over 95,000 people across the UK.
Our work also spans overseas. We work together around the world to help people facing hunger, who are caught up in conflict, and who had to flee their homes. We reunite families, meet needs during crisis and support communities to recover.

Thank you for your support.

Concern Worldwide works with the world's poorest people to tackle hunger and transform lives.
Hunger affects everything for the world's poorest people. We are working for a world where no one dies for want of safe, nutritious food. Our approach focuses on practical, intelligent solutions that save lives and build livelihoods.
Responding to crises
The places where we work are often at greater risk from disasters, both natural and manmade. In an emergency, Concern acts quickly to save lives. Then we stay to work with communities, rebuilding lives and livelihoods to ensure people are better prepared for future crises.
Change on a global scale
We know we won't solve the problem of hunger alone. In a world where one in nine people go hungry every day change is needed on a global scale. Through our advocacy, campaigning and influencing work we bring our practical experience to bear on national and international policy.
Working in partnership
.For more than 40 years, we've been working in partnership with communities, combining our expertise with their local knowledge.
Our approach enables families to tackle hunger and work their own way out of poverty.
From Bangladesh to Birmingham, Glasgow to Gaza, every child is full of potential
Save the Children helped 17.4 million children through our work in 2014 in 120 countries including UK. We run world-class programs to save childrens lives and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give children a brighter future.
When disaster strikes, there is no time to lose. Our teams respond quickly and do whatever it takes to save childrens lives. In 2014 we responded to 97 emergencies in 54 countries - delivering life-saving food, water, healthcare, protection and education to over 5 million people.
Education has the power to transform childrens futures. We are helping millions of children go to school and improve their skills for a brighter tomorrow.
Living on the streets or in refugee camps, or shut away in institutions – wherever children are vulnerable, they need protection from abuse, exploitation and neglect.
Save the Children started in Britain in 1919 and started working with children here soon after. Today we continue, through our UK programmes and campaigning, to tackle child poverty here at home, so children, whatever their background, have the chance to fulfil their potential
