Help us make vulnerable communities strong and resilient

The Disaster Relief Alliance is a new approach to helping vulnerable communities in the UK and beyond.

The Disaster Relief Alliance doesn’t just react when disaster strikes. It covers all stages of emergency relief:


We make communities stronger by preparing them for the worst. This includes investing in early warning systems, sanitation and fresh water supplies. 

We also teach local people how to deal with disasters before they hit.


The Disaster Relief Alliance supports the British Red Cross’ Disaster Fund. This means we’re ready to react the moment an emergency strikes.


We make long-term plans to support people recovering from disaster. This includes helping to rebuild homes and livelihoods, plus emotional support.


The Disaster Relief Alliance develops new ways to respond to disasters. We invest in technology and pioneer fresh approaches to delivering aid.

The alliance also aims to raise awareness of the need to prepare for disasters. We want to show how planning ahead can save lives.
