Team Rubicon UK is a charity whose primary mission is providing disaster relief to those affected by disasters, be they in the UK or international. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans, first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions we aim to solve problems where the need is greatest. Our members are predominantly military veterans, we engage them through service projects and training for International and UK disaster responses. Through these activities their sense of purpose grows and smooth transition to civilian life through service to others is achieved. Through continued service, Team Rubicon seeks to provide veterans with the three things they can lose after leaving the military: purpose gained through disaster relief, community built by serving with others and self-worth from recognising the impact one individual can make.

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
