Rapid response

We call it ‘Rapid Response’ for good reason.

Our teams are agile and fast, arriving for duty just hours after a disaster has struck. Their aim is to provide immediate life support for disaster survivors and help create order in the chaos caused by crisis.

Life Support

We deliver against the primary needs of a disaster survivor; clean water, reliable off-grid power, robust satellite communications and connectivity.


Our water purifiers can deliver clean, safe water every day to disaster-struck communities


We clear debris and provide light repairs, allowing people to return to their homes in safety


Using solar, wind or hydro sources, we provide sustainable power where supplies have been damaged


Working with our partners, Inmarsat, we provide pop-up masts to allow for phone and internet connection.

Situational Awareness

Disasters create chaos. Our response needs to be planned and coordinated to ensure we know who needs what aid, where.

Our teams use a military approach to quickly and effectively map the disaster location, assess the needs of those in the area and monitor the progress against the aid requirements. We aim to create order in the chaos.


Our unique experience of military logistics is put into practice to ensure aid is delivered to those most in need.

We work with our partners to ensure their materials are delivered where they are needed, clearing routes and safeguarding the journey right through to the final mile, often the most challenging leg of the journey.

Capacity & Resilience

Finally, our aim is to help local communities become better equipped and prepared for potential future disasters.

We engage the community, helping them become part of the solution and provide training and equipment, incident management, consultancy and planning support.

We ensure everyone who wants to help, can, through management of spontaneous volunteers.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Team Rubicon UK to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Team Rubicon UK we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Team Rubicon UK to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Team Rubicon UK will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Team Rubicon UK receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
