Interesting stuff for 13 to 14 year olds

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.
