Sickle Cell Care Manchester is a charitable organisation run by people whose lives have been affected by Sickle Cell Disease for people living with Sickle Cell Disease and their families.
Our Focus is to enable everyone affected by Sickle Cell Disease to live life to their full potential and secure the care and support they need, until we ultimately find a cure.
“Sickle Cell Care Manchester will strive to support people diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), their families and carers, in order to empower affected individuals and to enhance their quality of life. Sickle Cell Care Manchester will also work to improve awareness of SCD, not only in the communities most at risk of the condition, but also more widely, to improve knowledge and understanding of SCD, and to foster acceptance of those living with the condition.”
Aims & Objectives
Our aim is to ensure that people of all ethnicities who are living with this condition are informed about the condition and are aware of the support and services available to them.
We wish to highlight some practical measures to help and support people living with the SCD; also to work alongside other charitable bodies and organisations to help improve the lives of people living with the condition as much as possible.
To promote and support the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of sufferers of SCD.
To offer support, education and practical advice.
To provide resources to inform the general public in all areas relating to Sickle Cell Disease.
Members are overwhelmingly people affected by Sickle Cell Disease those with a family, personal or professional interest, and social or health care professionals. We provide support to anyone affected by Sickle Cell Disease, not just members.
We are a membership organisation with a network in our local community in Manchester; we work collaboratively with the NHS and other organisations in the UK with a common goal.
We depend on charitable fundraising and the support of public and volunteers to be able to do our work.
