How the UK Solidarity Fund works

The UK Solidarity Fund helps people affected by terror attacks anywhere in the UK.

The UK Solidarity Fund has been set up by the British Red Cross to help people affected by terror attacks in the UK.

The fund was set up in 2017 following attacks in Manchester and London.

Donations to the fund will help victims of terror attacks anywhere in the UK and ensure that victims and their families do not face short-term financial difficulties.

The UK Solidarity Fund Committee

Our UK Solidarity Fund Committee will make sure we use donations effectively in these sensitive situations.

The committee oversees how funding is given out after terror attacks and has an independent chair who can act on behalf of its board. This will help us make sure that funds are distributed fairly as far as possible, in keeping with the Red Cross principles of humanity, unity and impartiality.

Once decisions are made, funds will usually be sent to a suitable independent body that will distribute grants to victims based on agreed standards.
