The Sickle Cell Society is the only national charity in the UK that supports and represents people affected by Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) to improve their overall quality of life. Our mission is to enable and assist individuals to realise their full economic and social potential.
We support people affected by SCD through a national helpline and email service;
information resources available in print and through our website; advocacy in relation to welfare, education, health services, housing and employment; and awareness raising, lobbying and campaigning. We also deliver local projects aimed at increasing engagement with health services, an annual children’s holiday and assist with medical/social research.
