Red Cross Copenhagen

Red Cross Copenhagen

Established in 1917 Red Cross Copenhagen is today the largest national society of Danish Red Cross. More than 2.700 volunteers devote their time and energy to operate close to 50 different services/activities all with the aim of improving the lives of vulnerable individuals and minorities in the metropolitan region.

It is our ambition that socially vulnerable citizens shall have the same rights as everyone else in any society or community they wish to be part of. We want to provide the support they need – especially during the transitions in life where resources are limited.

Become a volunteer

We accept non-Danish speaking volunteers on a limited number of projects. For more information see below.

If you have any questions feel free to write us an email with your name and phone number at rkh.frivillig@rodekors.dk.

FOOD DISTRIBUTION

We need drivers for our food waste effort distributing surplus vegetables, fruit and bread twice a week to people having difficulties getting their economy to meet ends.

FAMILY GROUPS

We offer families without a network a nice homely setting to meet and get to know other families and participate in activities.

BICYCLE TRAINING

Bicycling can be essential. However, not many cultures have the same bicycle tradition as the Danes. Become a volunteer and learn others how to ride a bicycle.

CARE CENTER FOR HOMELESS DISCHARGED AFTER HOSPITALIZATION

The care center is a temporary residence for homeless adults who have been discharged after hospitalization, but have not yet fully recovered after completing somatic hospital treatment.
