Get Involved


Join our global network of carefully-selected humanitarian professionals and gain access to knowledge, resources, and exclusive events to enhance your skills and profile.


Membership applications are temporarily on hold.

To apply for membership, you must show a significant contribution to humanitarian work.

As well as suitable skills and a humanitarian motivation, you must be able to demonstrate at least five years of relevant professional experience and one year of humanitarian field experience.

If you would like to be informed when applications are open again, sign up to the RedR Newsletter below.

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.


Applications are temporarily on hold. If you would like to be informed when applications are open again, sign up to the RedR Newsletter at the bottom of the page.
