Cure Leukaemia

Studio 21b Victoria Works Vittoria Street Birmingham B1 3PE

0121 236 9202

Founded in 2003 by Professor Charlie Craddock, Cure Leukaemia helps to bring pioneering drug and transplant treatments to blood cancer patients throughout the Midlands. The charity helps finance the world class Centre for Clinical Haematology at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, to fund life-saving clinical trials to treat terminally ill leukaemia patients. To date, Cure Leukaemia has helped to treat over 4000 patients by leveraging over £23m worth of revolutionary drugs and funding crucial research nurses to administer these trials.

Without the expert research nurses to ensure patients are constantly monitored and cared for; these trials would not run. The aim of Cure Leukaemia is to raise money to fund more research nurses at centres across the Midlands and provide world-class treatment for its patients. Only by funding more nurses in more hospitals, can more leukaemia patients benefit from access to potentially life-saving treatment.

Together we can beat this disease; Birmingham can find a cure for leukaemia.

Three years on and we have grown from a small staff team of three to a team of nine working with approximately 37 carers.

We obtained registration with Ofsted in March 2006 and secured, membership with BAAF, The Fostering Network and the West Midlands Child Care Consortium. In addition we are on Birmingham’s preferred list as well as Worcestershire’s. This puts us in the position of having access to a number of children that both these authorities may wish to place for fostering.

Papyrus is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide in the UK. Every year over 1600 young people take their own lives in the UK. Many thousands more contemplate suicide; many harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

PAPYRUS exists to give young people hope and to prevent young suicide.

We have opened an office in Birmingham to enable us to engage with the community and help reduce the number of young peope who take their own lives in the West Midlands.

We want to enhance the great work already being done by charitable organisations and equip young people, and their communities, with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour. We run the national helpline, HOPELineUK and deliver vital suicide prevention and intervention training across the UK.

St John Ambulance

St John Ambulance 100 Lionel Street Birmingham West Midlands B3 1DG

0121 236 6660

Opening Hours:
Mon-Fri: 9am - 5pm

We believe that it’s absolutely unacceptable that so many people die needlessly – because no one could give them first aid when they needed it.

St John Ambulance teaches people first aid – about 800,000 last year alone – so that they can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.

  • We teach young people in schools and through our activities for young people
  • We teach people in the workplace and provide first aid products
  • We teach people in the community.

And we teach people who become our volunteers; who offer their skills and time to be the difference right in the heart of their community – at public events, as first responders or providing back up to local ambulance services. 

As a charity, we’re committed to making sure more people can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved. To do that, we need your help.

The Challenge is the UK’s leading charity for building a more integrated society. We work on a local level to bring together people from all ages, ethnicities and walks of life, connecting communities and building trust.

In Birmingham we run two programmes, NCS and HeadStart.
NCS is a government-backed programme which brings together young people from diverse backgrounds, providing them with strong skills for life, work, and adulthood

​HeadStart gets young people volunteering in their local community so that they mix and meet with people from all walks of life. It inspires young people to volunteer by guaranteeing everyone who does so an interview for a part-time job.
