Volunteers who are clinically vulnerable, such as those who are over 70, pregnant or who have various underlying health conditions are able to volunteer in public facing roles providing the environment is Covid-safe, with social distancing and hygiene controls maintained, and a personal risk assessment has been completed.

In 2020 the British Red Cross turns 150. It is thanks to all our supporters and volunteers that we have been able to help people during emergencies since 1870. Our volunteers have been providing emotional and practical support to those affected during emergencies such as Aberfan, the London 7/7 bombings and more recently the Manchester Arena bombings and Grenfell fire. The Red Cross doesn't only respond to large-scale emergencies, we respond to an emergency on average every four hours ranging from house fires and floods to power cuts and water shortages. Help us continue our story by applying to volunteer with us today.
