Red Cross Week 2023: 8 - 14 May

It's a critical time for the British Red Cross and the work we do. Today over 100 million people are displaced across the world, including 10 million from Ukraine making the work that we do even more vital.

Raise money to help us deliver our essential services in the UK and overseas - including our work to support people in crisis and reunite separated families.

With your help we can be there for people who need us in the UK and overseas. Together we are the world's emergency responders.

What is Red Cross Week?

Red Cross Week is our favourite time of the year. It ties in with World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day. This is an annual celebration of our Movement's work across the world, which is celebrated on 8 May each year.

Whether you choose to take to the streets in your town, or organise your own fundraising event, spread the power of kindness and get fundraising between 8 – 14 May.
