Welcome to CLL Support, a patient – led UK charity.
Our mission is to support and empower Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) patients, and Small Lymphocytic Leukaemia (SLL) patients, their families and supporters through education and access to reliable, relevant and current information.
We also represent CLL patients in discussions with government, pharmaceutical companies, other leukaemia charities and the National Institute for Care and Health Excellence (NICE).
Our charity was founded in 2004 by patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL) and their partners. It continues to be run by volunteers, all of whom have been personally affected by CLL or Small Lymphocytic Lymphoma (SLL). CLL and SLL are slightly different forms of the same disease and are managed in the same way.
Currently, we have more than 3,000 members.
Our aim is to empower people affected by CLL and related conditions by supporting learning and self-development using reliable and current websites, literature and links to current sources of information, supported by our own website and frequent regional members meetings with expert consultant speakers.
We also have well-established links with national leukaemia and lymphoma charities and other international CLL organisations, all accessible from this site. We provide support to CLL patients and their carers and inform them of development in treatment and research.CLL overview
We rely on the generosity of members and others to maintain the high level of service and support which many find so valuable.
