The Red Cross
"There is no greater act of humanity than to save someone's life”.
Chief executive Sir Nicholas Young
British Red Cross
Red Cross Training is part of the British Red Cross and the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the world’s largest independent humanitarian organisation. We help vulnerable people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.
By working with us, you are supporting a global movement. All operating surplus from our work goes into our Charity Fund, so by using the Red Cross Training to fulfil your first aid training needs you will also be helping us care for people in crisis at home and overseas.
A history in first aid
Our delivery of first aid training is born out of the desire of the Movement to bring assistance without discrimination to those in need. We not only respond to accidents but also help reduce their impact by building individual, corporate and community resilience.
We have been providing first aid training for the workplace for over 25 years, and we will continue to raise awareness of first aid so that, by 2015, 20 per cent of the UK population will know how to save a life.
