What we do

We’re the UK’s leading blood cancer research charity.









Everything we do is focussed on improving the lives of everyone affected by blood cancer, the fifth most common cancer in the UK. We want to bring forward the day when every single person affected by blood cancer is able to live a full life.

Research

We fund research to improve treatment and care for people living with all types of blood cancer, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.

We currently have over £84m committed across 161 research projects around the UK, all of which are enabling researchers to make findings that improve outcomes for people affected.

Campaigning for better care

The Houses of Parliament

We are the voice of the 240,000 people in the UK with blood cancer at senior levels of Government, Parliament and the NHS.

Too often, care and treatment for people with blood cancer is not good enough. We’re campaigning to change that.

Working together

We’re able to provide the greatest impact when we give a platform to people affected by cancer, the researchers and health professionals who dedicate their lives to improving health care, and the ordinary people who do extraordinary things to support our work.

We also know we won’t beat blood cancer on our own. We work with other charities and the research community, because we believe it is only through working as part of a wider movement that we stand the best chance of bringing forward the day when everyone with blood cancer gets to live a long and full life.
