Past emergencies

We have been providing emergency support since 1945

Working locally throughout the year, we are there when a disaster strikes and remain in the country to better prepare communities in the event of a future crisis.

Find out about previous emergencies we have responded to below. Get key facts about each appeal, see how much money we raised and the difference we made to people’s lives with your donations.

Help us be there when a disaster strikes

For every £1 we spend helping communities prepare for disasters, we can save up to £5 in reactive emergency response costs. Please donate so that we can continue this vital work.
