We've switched to this site while we do some maintenance on our main site.

Don't worry – this is the British Red Cross website. We have had to switch to our back-up site temporarily while we fix a technical problem. But you can still give to our appeals using the links below.

If you'd like more information, or want to use a service, please call us on 0844 412 2804, or email
Thank you for your patience - the main British Red Cross website will be available soon.
