About The British Red Cross And The EFL
The EFL and the humanitarian charity, British Red Cross joined forces in a new partnership ahead of the 2022/23 season to use the power of football to support those experiencing loneliness in England and Wales.
In doing so, the British Red Cross became the EFL’s Official Charity Partner with both organisations combining efforts to reduce isolation in communities around the country via the EFL and its 72 clubs.
Chronic loneliness can have a serious impact on wellbeing and currently the British Red Cross’ works with over 100,000 people experiencing loneliness per year through dedicated services across the UK. This ranges from helping isolated elderly people to supporting refugees who arrive with nothing.
