If you are deaf or hard of hearing

You can call us using Relay UK. Just dial 18001 followed by 0808 2080 888, or download the Relay UK app.

If you need to talk to us in a different language

We offer support to people in the UK whose first language is not English, using a telephone interpreting service. This covers over 170 languages and is free to use.

You can call the support line directly on 0808 2080 888 and request an interpreter. We will ask you for your phone number and check which language you speak. We will then end the call whilst we contact an interpreter and call you back after around 5 minutes.

Don't feel like talking on the phone?

You can email us or message us directly on Facebook or Twitter. We'll usually get back to you within two working days. 

You could also join our Online Community - a space for anyone affected by blood cancer to talk, share, ask questions and connect with others.  

What is our blood cancer support line?

Our blood cancer support line is a free and confidential service for all people with blood cancer, their friends and family, and for anyone worried about blood cancer.

We are a dedicated team of trained blood cancer support officers who can help with emotional and practical support, and information about blood cancer.

Get in touch with us if you have a specific question about blood cancer, or just to talk through how you're feeling. We are also currently providing information and support to people affected by blood cancer who are concerned about the impact of coronavirus.
