British Red Cross
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.

No two days in our shops are ever the same. From the exciting donations that come through our door, to the wonderful customers who shop with us. Our shops are ever changing, but one thing that never changes is that we need volunteers to help us to spread the power of kindness

Our shops are great places to learn new skills and share existing ones. Join our enthusiastic teams and try your hand at all number of tasks. From serving customers on the shop floor, to learning about all the amazing things we get donated, there is truly something for everyone!

What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
We take an individual approach to ensuring your safety, and may ask you to complete a simple risk assessment.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
