British Red Cross

The British Red Cross has been delivering health and social care service since the NHS was established. We provide valuable time-limited support 
to vulnerable people across the UK, helping them live independently in their own homes. 
We also support the health service when people have entered the system by helping patients get home from hospital, easing patient flow and ensuring their short term needs are met.
