For thousands of vulnerable people in the UK and overseas, the Red Cross is a sign of hope in crisis, meeting both immediate and longer term needs.
Donations to our General Fund Appeal can be used to support all our work. Our experience of working with people in emergency situations around the world means we can allocate our resources in the most effective ways possible.
The British Red Cross will use your donation wherever the need is greatest, both internationally and in the UK.
Gift Aid is one of the simplest and most effective ways of giving to charity. Under Gift Aid, for every £1 you give we can claim back at least 25p extra, at no extra cost to you. So do remember to tick the gift aid box when making your donation.
