RedR UK is an international charity that builds the knowledge and skills of individuals and organisations for more effective humanitarian action. We train aid workers, provide operational expertise to humanitarian organisations through our members and technical advice, and support state actors to be more effective across the whole disaster cycle.
We deliver practical, life-saving skills which enable people to prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters and conflict.
We train life-savers. We give people the skills to be ready for, and respond to major disasters like earthquakes, floods, conflict and drought.
We protect lives and livelihoods in developing countries. Our practical training and expert support means that communities won’t beaten by disasters.
We make sure people can get clean water services running again, can prevent a cholera outbreak, know if a building is safe after an earthquake, and know how to put in place measures to enable communities to protect themselves from the impact of a disaster.
Citizens are always the first responders to a disaster. That’s why we build the skills of national aid workers working for local organisations in disaster-prone countries through our training, through the co-working of our members or through our free technical advice service. Our approach ensures skills remain in-country for the long-term, ready for future disasters.
