Calling all ‘Lost’ Members

At the AGM in January 2021, it was agreed that RedR would primarily use email to communicate with members. However, our records unfortunately show that we do not hold email addresses for nearly 30% of our members and this at a time when we are trying to re-engage members in RedR activities and important changes in membership are being discussed.

If you are a member and did not, for instance receive an invitation to the AGM in October 2021, please email membership@redr.org.uk as soon as possible with your full name, date when you became a member (if known) and preferred email for membership communications.

We look forward to being back in contact at this exciting time!

Jo de Serrano, CEO

I like the idea of being a part of a network of sharing lessons learned. Even when you have got experience, you should always be ready to learn, to be open and curious, and to change your point of view.

Become an Aid Worker

What if I’m not yet eligible for Membership?

If you have professional experience and would like to become an aid worker, we can provide the training you need to help you adapt your skills for field work during humanitarian emergencies.

If you are a graduate, undergraduate, or looking for a career change but lack the necessary professional experience, then we recommend our popular So You Think You Want To Be A Relief Worker? course, a one-day workshop which runs every other month in London.

If you have three years of professional experience in a role with transferable skills, you can become a RedR Affliate and access support and guidance to develop your humanitarian career. The benefits include access to the RedR Members’ network, training discounts, and the chance to be mentored by an experienced RedR Member.
