Sickle Cell Society

Type of service:
National Organisation
Address:
54 Station Road, Sickle Cell Society, London, NW10 4UA
Telephone number:
020 8961 7795
Service description:
The Sickle Cell Society believes that individuals suffering from sickle cell disease has the right to quality care.
This can only be achieved if funding is made available to educate health carers and other professionals about the condition. The Society aims to provide this. The Society does not discriminate between the types of sickle cell disorders or the ethnic groups concerned. Both sexes are equally affected, and should have equal access to support and services within a confidential and sensitive environment. We respect the views of every patient. We have a network of committed volunteers, who play an important part in running the charity, providing administrative backup, and helping with fund-raising activities.
Donations from the public, fund-raising activities and membership fees are also part of our life support. Without them, we would be unable to finance the essential welfare, research and educational projects and we would be unable to offer children a much-needed holiday. The Society benefits from the support of a wide range of individuals and organisations nationally, who together play a vital role in its success. It draws funding support from amongst others the Department of Health, Community Fund, Lloyds TSB Foundation, PPP Healthcare Medical Trust and Goldman Sachs International.
