Young people can become full British Red Cross volunteers from the age of 15 – but that doesn’t mean you can’t start getting involved even earlier.
The minimum age rule applies for many reasons (child protection, etc) too boring to go into here, but the fact is we’d love you to learn more about our work right now – and perhaps start preparing for your future volunteering role.
As you’ll see, we have lots of fun activities to keep you occupied for now.
We've got loads of fundraising ideas for you, from auctions of promises to zoo animal fancy dress parties – check out the full A-Z of fundraising ideas.
Everyday First Aid makes it easy to learn the skills you’ll need to treat a range of injuries and illnesses.

Our life-saving work depends on people like you.
