The British Red Cross helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are, as part of a global volunteer network, responding to conflicts, natural disasters and individual emergencies. British Red Cross help vulnerable people in the UK and abroad prepare for, withstand and recover from emergencies in their own communities. The Foundation awarded the British Red Cross £1,500 towards the First Call Service supporting older people within the City of Bristol. First Call service Bristol provides practical and emotional support over the phone and/or at home, from one-off telephone calls for advice and guidance, up to on-going visits at home.
