British Red Cross Cash Delegate Register
Are you an experienced cash and markets specialist who can help the British Red Cross and the wider Red Cross Red Crescent Movement scale-up our cash-based humanitarian assistance work?
Become part of the British Red Cross Cash Delegate Register and join us today in committing to the future of cash.
In the British Red Cross we have seen for ourselves that giving cash assistance in the aftermath of a humanitarian crisis can often be a more effective and efficient option than offering goods and supplies.
We know from research and our experiences in the field that affected people can make independent decisions about what they most immediately need and buy vital items of their own choice.
It has been shown that when cash payments are distributed, the increased local spending power helps economies in crisis-affected places recover and get back to normal more quickly, meaning aid budgets can stretch further.
The Cash Hub initiative, hosted by British Red Cross (BRC), aims to support the scale-up and acceleration of cash-based assistance in the International Red Cross and Red Crescent (RCRC) Movement, was launched in 2017. In 2017 the Movement delivered 767 million CHF of cash based assistance to 5.57 million people in over 80 countries. Focus remains on scaling up the delivery of cash throughout the Movement, with the work of the BRC Cash Hub playing a key part in this. We are a champion of the independence and greater choice this form of assistance can offer people in crisis and having a strong register of experiences specialists will be key to supporting the Red Cross Red Crescent movement in its scale-up of cash assistance.
