Mission Statement

The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are. We are part of a global voluntary network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies.

We enable vulnerable people in the UK and abroad to prepare for and withstand emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, we help them to recover and move on with their lives.


We have approximately 320 retail outlets in the UK and represent a significant fundraising arm of the British Red Cross. The shops generate a lot of much-needed income and are a great way to raise the profile of the charity on the high street. Close to 7 million people visit our shops every year, spending over £25 million in our shops.
