Approximately 15,00 people in the UK have Sickle Cell Disease. TEF aims to support those affected by the chronic illness through access to traditional therapies, counselling and emotional wellbeing courses. We will also be working with schools, councils and hospital trusts across the UK to educate on the policies that will encourage better practices and running regular events and campaigns to educate everyone who is impacted by Sickle Cell Disease to get the support they need.
The Essenelle Foundation registered as a charity in 2021, after the Founder, Layla Lawson, through her own second-hand experience with Sickle Cell through her 2-year old daughter, decided it was crucial that people living with Sickle Cell Disease and their families are supported.
