The intensity of emergencies in 2017 – from the terrorist attacks in Manchester and London to Grenfell – led the Charity Commission to convene a number of people in the charitable sector to see if there was a better way of responding to national emergencies. This has led to the creation of The National Emergencies Trust, which collaborates with charities and other bodies to raise and distribute money and support victims at the time of a domestic disaster.
We are a charity, not the state; we are additional to what the state is doing. We are independent of government and do not replicate the work of central or local government.
