About RedR UK

People and skills for disaster relief

RedR UK trains life-savers. We give people the skills to be ready for, and respond to major disasters like earthquakes, floods, conflict and drought.  

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.

Humanitarian Response

We’ve responded to every major disaster in recent years, including the Syrian conflict, the Ebola outbreak in west Africa, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, floods in Pakistan and the Haiti earthquake. 

RedR UK Members work at the frontline of humanitarian response for a wide variety of NGOs and UN agencies. 

Humanitarian Response

Where we work

We deliver humanitarian training and support around the world working primarily in developing countries that are prone to, or have been affected by, major natural disasters or conflict. We have regional programme offices in the UK, Kenya, Jordan and Sudan. We deliver training, consultancy services and expert support globally. 

I’ve taken three RedR courses: Needs Assessment in Emergencies, Training of Trainers, and Proposal- and Report-Writing. The trainers have always been great. They have a lot of knowledge, and they know how to share it and to enhance our skills, our ability in our work. We don’t find any other training centres in Sudan that specialise in courses for NGOs and humanitarian organisations. I’ve just got back to Khartoum after a ten-day trip to the field, and I can say for sure that I’ve used what I learnt when writing up my field report.
