What we do

The British Red Cross helps millions of people in the UK and around the world prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, disasters and conflicts. We refuse to ignore people in crisis. The Red Cross in Northern Ireland provide a wide range of services including responses to major emergencies such as fires and floods, helping people cope after such events.

We educate people in life saving skills, enabling them to respond to emergencies in their communities running courses and talks for members of the public, groups schools and companies. We provide time limited support to vulnerable people, helping them live independently in their own homes, reducing admission to hospitals and residential care.

We help vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees access essential services and adjust to life in a new country. We provide short-term assistance to people who are otherwise destitute.

Gifts in Wills

People in the UK and throughout the world depend on the Red Cross. We are there to help people, whoever and wherever they are, in crises large and small. Currently, around £1 in every £4 of our donated income comes from gifts in wills. We need that money to ensure our life-saving work continues long into the future. We also need it so that we are ready to act immediately whenever an emergency happens. If the British Red Cross is to continue helping people in crisis, it is vital that our supporters continue to remember us in this special way.
