Carer Services

I care for someone with sickle cell anaemia or thalassemia

Oscar Birmingham‘s specialist service is for family carers supporting someone, predominantly children and young people living with Sickle Cell Anaemia and Thalassaemia blood disorder, including co-morbidities. This is a city-wide service as part of Birmingham Carers Hub delivery partnership arrangements to support Carers from black and minority ethnic communities so they have better access to services, ensure they have a voice and are heard. 

This service will also help carers to: 

  • Reduce feelings of loneliness 
  • Increase social participation 
  • Increase confidence in your role as a Carer 
  • Create a support network 

For more information contact: sumera.naaz@oscarbirmingham.org.uk or call Sumera on 0121 212 9209.
