National Emergencies Trust
Our work with the National Emergencies Trust
Created in 2017 as a response to the intensity of national emergencies, the National Emergencies Trust works with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money and support victims at the time of a domestic disaster.
The Trust’s main aim is to be trusted to work collaboratively to raise funds fairly and efficiently at a time of a large scale domestic disaster.
At the time of a domestic disaster, The Trust will launch a fundraising appeal, allowing the public to donate to one clear, independent and trusted organisation.
They work with local distribution partners such as community foundations and local charities to ensure financial support gets to the individuals or organisations that need it most.
Collaboration with the British Red Cross
The British Red Cross is part of The Trust's National Charitable Partners Programme, which aims to ensure that all those affected by future emergencies receive the support they need, when and where they need it, by facilitating nationwide funding at speed during future disasters.
During the programme’s pilot, both organisations will work closely with each partner to explore how support packages could be pre-designed so those affected by future emergencies receive assistance as soon as they need it.
