There comes a time in every family, where despite all your best efforts, you have to ask for help elsewhere. A few weeks ago we saw on advert on TV for British Red Cross and noticed that they do lots more than help in war zones and provide medical aid in dangerous areas, they help people in crisis in the UK too. Sometimes when a loved one comes out of hospital, it can be quite a lonely experience and also isolating. That's where British Red Cross come in, they are a volunteer led organisation that help people in crisis, no matter where or who they are. A lot of people know the story of how British Red Cross helped people out in World War 1 and 2 by sending medical supplies and parcels to those on the front line, but their work goes on, and last year they helped 1 million people in the UK.
The British Red Cross can provide help for those in need or their carers, providing short term help and support. I wish we had known about them in the last few years, as sometimes when a relative is ill, it can be hard to know where to turn or who to turn to, it can become a matter of pride where it becomes too difficult to ask for help. Support British Red Cross by visiting their Facebook page or saying hello on twitter.
