About this cause

About our cause

The Sickle Cell Society is the only national charity operating in its field. The Society’s mission is to enable and assist individuals with a Sickle Cell Disorder to realise their full economic and social potential.

Sickle Cell disorders (SCD) are a group of genetic diseases that affect the red blood cells of people with the condition. They can cause bouts of extreme pain in any part of the body (crisis) which could last for several days/weeks. It can cause strokes, brain damage, blindness and permanent damage to many different organs. Many of those affected will die at an early age and at present there is no cure.

There are 250,000 people in the UK, who are carriers of the sickle cell gene and over 13,000 people have a sickle cell disorder - making it the most common inherited blood disorder in the country.
