Advocacy

The British Red Cross speaks out and campaigns on behalf of people in crisis.

Advocacy helps us raise awareness of the conditions facing people who are affected by conflict and disaster. We work with politicians, policy-makers and the public to improve the humanitarian situation of vulnerable people, families and communities in the UK and around the world.

We advocate based on direct experience, and empower vulnerable people to speak out themselves about matters that affect them.
