The British Red Cross is part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. We enable vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them to recover and move on with their lives.

We are committed to welcoming people from the widest possible diversity of background, culture and experience. As part of the recruitment and selection process the Red Cross undertakes CRB checking of all individuals who have regular contact with children and vulnerable adults.
