Young people volunteered with the British Red Cross during the First and the Second World Wars. The Junior Red Cross, a section of the British Red Cross which recruited young volunteers, was officially formed in 1924. Its main objectives were the protection of life and health, services to the sick and suffering, and international friendship and understanding.

Today, young people continue to work with the British Red Cross through youth engagement and education programmes.

The British Red Cross has a long history of supporting people to live independently. This is an important service we continue to provide today. Our volunteers help people to settle back home after a hospital stay, deliver food to people’s homes, and help people reconnect with their communities.
