accessibility & help
In the summer of 2007, more than a month of torrential rain led to severe flooding across the UK, bringing misery to hundreds of thousands of people by destroying homes and some livelihoods, cutting off access to drinking water, and causing major disruption to travel routes.
As a leading voluntary organisation for emergency response, the Red Cross has thousands of specially trained volunteers. Read all about how we helped people before, during and after the floods.
From distributing water and food parcels to raising money to help people recover, we helped flooded communities across the UK.
When communities across the UK were flooded, Red Cross volunteers helped thousands of vulnerable people caught up in the crisis.
We distributed grants to local authorities and charities from our National Floods Appeal to help communities recover after the floods.
Day or night, in an emergency you’ll be there to help when someone needs it most.
