British Lotterry Foundation Funding from the National Lottery allows the British Red Cross to help vulnerable people.

Since 2012, The Big Lottery Fund has given £10.6 million to support our work. These funds have allowed us to:

  • help older people remain independent at home
  • tackle loneliness and social isolation
  • support and protect refugees.
