The British Red Cross has been supporting vaccination programmes for generations, and thanks to the support of our incredible volunteers, we're now working hard to help the NHS fight Covid-19.
Here are a few ways our teams are helping to fight the pandemic:
- Our assisted discharge service supports patients who are medically fit to leave hospital, helping to free up hospital beds.
- Our volunteers provide on-going practical and emotional support at home to vulnerable people self-isolating.
- We also have teams working in various A&E departments providing practical and emotional support to patients and families.
