The Sickle Cell Society is a national charity supporting young people with sickle cell disease – a red blood cells disorder most common in people with an African or Caribbean family background.
Children with sickle cell disease need extra support and care due to the complex nature of the condition.
The charity runs a helpline and an information service to help young people and their families understand and learn how to manage this life-threatening condition.
The Sickle Cell Society also runs a range of activities for young people with the condition to help reduce isolation and provide opportunities to make new friends, as well as respite and peer support for the whole family.
Global’s Make Some Noise is proud to support the charity’s ‘Children’s Activities Project’ which engages children and young people with sickle cell disease in a wide range of creative, educational and confidence-building activities during school holidays, short-breaks, and an annual residential for children aged 8-17.
All of the charity’s activities for children and young people aim to help them understand and learn how to positively manage this extremely painful and life-threatening condition.
With your help, we can support The Sickle Cell Society and many more charities across the UK.
