Founded in 1983, the Red Cross EU Office (RCEU) is a partnership between 29 National Red Cross Societies of the EU/EEA and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).
The Red Cross EU Office helps to coordinate relations between its member organisations and EU decision-makers and stakeholders, sharing their expertise in supporting vulnerable people and communities within and outside the EU. Based on our members’ practical insights and technical experience, we promote the dignity and wellbeing of vulnerable people by facilitating and voicing common positions and recommendations towards the EU and Member States. We also monitor European developments that could impact the implementation of our members’ work, as well as supporting them to prepare joint proposals to access EU funding.

The overall aim of the Disaster Management and Development Unit is to strengthen Red Cross’ influence on EU policy, legislation and practice, as well as to mobilise EU resources for our members.
