Red Shield Appeal Paused for Covid-19

Given the unprecedented circumstances we currently face as a nation, we have decided to pause the launch of our Red Shield Appeal in April and our nationwide Red Shield street collection from 4-10 May.

For those of you who wish to make a donation, we are continuing to receive these via our online platforms. See above for ways to give. We greatly value your help at this time as we experience additional demand on our services. 

Do You Need to Take a Break from our True Heroes Programme?

Please email us if you need to change your True Heroes regular gift amount, including pausing or stopping.

Email us with our request and we will action this for you.

  • Please include a contact phone number if possible.
