The Sickle Cell Society

The Sickle Cell Society is a national charity for sickle cell disorder, an inherited blood disease. The charity provides information, advice and support to those affected, from a helpline service to an annual children’s residential respite holiday, as well as educating the public.

Children with sickle cell disease need to learn about managing their condition from a young age. The Sickle Cell Society brings children together and teaches them about their health so they feel better able to look after themselves.

Children with sickle cell disease need a little bit of fun in their lives but have special needs. Each year, the Sickle Cell Society runs a tailored holiday where volunteer carers and medics take children on a residential trip with activities including art, sports and theme parks!
