The British Red Cross help anyone, anywhere in the UK; get the support they need if crisis strikes.

We're part of the global Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, and we believe in the power of kindness.

Our organisation was born out of a desire to bring help without discrimination. Impartiality and neutrality have been central values for the Red Cross since we started.

We support a huge range of people and we recruit for a diverse workforce -including disabled and ethnic minority candidates. This is to contribute to the breadth of experience we need to respond to people in crisis.
