The UK has provided £38 million from the Conflict Pool and its successor, the Conflict Stability and Security Fund, to support the White Helmets over the past five years. This assistance, delivered through trusted third party implementers as part of a coordinated international programme of assistance, has provided training and equipment to support the White Helmets’ vital civil defence work.
