  • Women Driving Political Change

Saturday, 18 October 2014

The British Red Cross Staff at the Conservative Party Conference explained the varied roles the British Red Cross plays to support humanitarian responses addressing conflict, and refusing to ignore personal crisis. Their disciplines range from volunteering in the UK and deeper international projects. It was interesting to hear how they were specifically working on: the Ebola Crisis, stakeholder partners and progressive developments, raising awareness campaigns, conflict resolution training and assisting those in greater need.

The British Red Cross, in the UK chairs a forum to improve and strengthen communications between non-governmental aid organisations (NGOs) and the British Armed Forces and Government Departments. This particular forum meets to discuss policy and operational matters and relationship engagement in humanitarian responses.

Members and a number of representatives from: the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, NGOs, the British Armed Forces, Ministry of Defence (MOD), Department for International Development (DFID), Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), and independent specialists discuss these crucial matters.

The visitors gained a great insight of the work and volunteers.
