However much time you have and whatever your experience, there are lots of UK volunteering opportunities at the British Red Cross.

Volunteering gives you the chance to meet new people, learn new skills and help people get the support they need if crisis strikes.

Be an ambulance volunteer

As a volunteer driver or specialist NHS support volunteer, you'll use your skills to help people get to and from hospital and medical treatments. 

Help people get a wheelchair

We need volunteers to help get people mobile and support our wheelchair hire service.

Volunteer to help in emergencies 

In an emergency you'll be there to help when someone needs it most.

Be an interpreter or translator

If you speak another language, you could give a voice to people in need by supporting our refugee services or family tracing services.

Volunteer in a shop

Our charity shops around the UK are powered by the kindness of volunteers who help raise vital funds. Join us today.

Support people to live independently

Volunteer to help people settle back home after a hospital stay and to feel confident living independently.

Missing Maps

Map some of the most vulnerable settlements in the world. Get involved, organise a mapathon or donate today. You don’t need any experience and you can train yourself online.

Be a volunteer driver

If you have a driving licence, you could help us deliver support to people who need it at home.

You could also deliver mobility aids, collect donations or support our shops.

Be an admin volunteer

If you want to help in one of our offices or support our services, you could volunteer your admin skills.

Help refugees and asylum seekers

Provide information, advice and support to refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants.

Be a volunteer trainer or teacher

If you have the time to share your knowledge, you could help train a new generation of humanitarians.

Support people at home

From making a cup of tea and having a chat to helping with shopping, volunteer to help people live independently.

Raise funds for us

Fundraising volunteers help us support more people. From organising a sponsored abseil to counting cash in an office, help us raise vital funds.

Help find missing family

When families are separated by war or disaster, we need volunteers to help people trace missing relatives.
