British Red Cross is part of the world’s largest humanitarian organisation, the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which is comprised of 192 National Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). Our mission is to mobilise the power of humanity so that individuals and communities have the capacity to prepare for, deal with and recover from crisis. The Fundamental Principles of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement - Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality – underpin our work. Additionally, British Red Cross has a special legal status and role amongst humanitarian agencies, which includes working as a humanitarian auxiliary to the UK government.
