We work hard to ensure we can provide a service which is dedicated to providing advice and support for those living with Sickle Cell or Thalassaemia within our community. 


Our core team ensures that we continue to run the support group on a daily basis although without our volunteers we would not be where we are today, and certainly would not be here tomorrow.


Our volunteers have helped us immensely in making the support group the success it is today.  Not only are we grateful to them, we take warm heart in saying that those living with the condition and their families are even more so grateful.


Volunteers are people like you, people who want to make a difference, people who care!


We seek people from all areas of the community whether you are a local resident within Barking, Dagenham, Havering or surrounding areas regardless of your age, race, gender, disabilities or religious beliefs.


What you will gain


We depend on volunteers to help us in providing support with our services.  Volunteering has a number of benefits which include:


  • Gives you the opportunity to meet new people and further reach out to other groups within the community
  • Can be very rewarding providing a good way to develop use of your skills outside of daily life
  • Viewed positively by employers, but more importantly, with grace and huge appreciation from the people you help support
  • Opportunities to be recognised at various volunteering award ceremonies for your services
  • A chance to be part of making a difference to someone else’s life and your own


From helping provide support services, to arranging and managing events, your support would be greatly valued.  Ways in which you can help include:


  • Fundraising
  • Administration and office work
  • Befriending
  • Home and hospital visits
  • Events organising and planning
  • Organising and attending workshops, awareness days and seminars
