British Red Cross
British Red Cross
The British Red Cross is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
By mobilising the power of humanity we will help to build a world in which individuals and communities have the power to withstand or recover from natural and man-made emergencies, and in which those who are most vulnerable receive the help they need.
British Red Cross aims to:
- Vulnerable individuals will be better able to withstand and recover from a health or social care crisis, and more able to live with dignity and as independently as possible.
- The humanitarian impact of crises and disasters will be reduced. Individuals will be more likely to act to support, influence and build community resilience.
- Individuals and communities can better withstand and recover from crises, emergencies and disasters.
- The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement will have increased impact as the leading humanitarian actor meeting the needs of the most vulnerable.
