About Organization

The British Red Cross is a humanitarian organization that provides support to people in crisis in the UK and around the world. The organization was founded in 1870 and is part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.

The British Red Cross provides a wide range of services, including emergency response, first aid training, health and social care services, refugee support, and international humanitarian assistance. The organization works with vulnerable communities, including refugees and asylum seekers, elderly people, and people affected by natural disasters and conflict.

In the UK, the British Red Cross works closely with the National Health Service (NHS) and other organizations to provide emergency response services, including ambulance support, patient transport, and community first aid. The organization also provides support to people who are recovering from illness or surgery, and to those who are isolated or in need of companionship.
