About Sickle Cell Society

The Sickle Cell Society is Britain’s only national charity for sickle cell disorders, an inherited haemoglobin disorder. The Sickle Cell Society was founded in 1979 by a group of patients, parents and health professionals who shared concerns about the lack of understanding of sickle cell disorders and the inadequacies of treatment. We aim to raise awareness of sickle cell disorders, push for improvements to treatment and provide advice, information and support to the sickle cell community.

This community connects people living with or affected by sickle cell in the UK.
