Red Alert HELP! provides an interactive online advice portal available 24/7 x 365 to help affected families and related campaign groups to find the information, services or support that they need. Primarily featuring services in the West Midlands, there is also information on national services, campaigns and support initiatives.
The portal consists of a type-recognition system that will find key words as visitors type into the search box, and then present answers or solutions to the query. Visitors can also submit tickets (queries / requests).
Important: The ‘Data Submission’ page will always be available to any person that offers their time as volunteer researchers. We welcome submissions of new resources at any time provided they fall within the operational focus of Red Alert – See data submission here >
