Working with others
We know we won’t beat blood cancer alone, and so partnering with other organisations is an important part of our work.
The highest-profile way we worked with other organisations this year was through One Cancer Voice, a coalition of cancer charities. We supported the work of One Cancer Voice during the General Election campaign, ensuring candidates to be MPs understood the priorities for cancer as a whole. We later led its work on the response to the coronavirus pandemic
We have been part of the Blood Cancer Alliance, which provides a forum for all charities representing people with blood cancer to speak with a single voice to policymakers. We have also been a member of the Children and Young People with Cancer Coalition.
We continued to be members of the National Cancer Research Institute and the Association of Medical Research Charities, playing our role in ensuring research charities work together in a coordinated way and have a louder voice.
We also promoted the work of other charities, using our social media channels to encourage people to sign up for stem cell registries with Anthony Nolan and DKMS UK.
