Find out more about our partnership with Anthony Nolan 🙌 

Everyday Anthony Nolan gives three people a second chance at life.

We are thrilled to partner with Anthony Nolan, the charity that makes lifesaving connections between people with blood cancer and incredible strangers. The charity uses its stem cell donor register to help find potential matches for blood disorder and blood cancer patients. It also carries out pioneering research to increase stem cell transplant success and supports patients through their transplant journeys. 


Unity at NEXT work very closely with the charity to help raise awareness of and diversify the Anthony Nolan stem cell donor register. This partnership aims to support, contribute to their vital work and raise awareness about the impact of blood cancer and disorders on individuals and their families.


It’s particularly important that people from minority ethnic backgrounds join the stem cell register. Having a wide range of ethnicities on the charity’s stem cell register is vital to ensure everyone has the best chance of surviving blood cancer and blood disorders.

“We are incredibly excited to join in partnership with Anthony Nolan. Their work in boosting stem cell donor sign-ups, especially among minority ethnic communities, is truly inspiring. It's disheartening to see that fewer patients from ethnic minorities who need a stem cell transplant have a stem cell donor already on the register — this health inequality is really concerning. Working together with Anthony Nolan we have a chance to make a real difference and save more lives. This collaboration fills us with anticipation and hope for a brighter future.”

James Nyamuda, Chair of Unity at NEXT.

“We’re dedicated to ensuring that all patients have the best access to, experience of and outcome from treatment, no matter their background. NEXT’s Unity group’s focus on equality and diversity makes them an ideal partner for us, and I’m so pleased they’ve selected us for this new partnership."

Henny Braund MBE, Chief Executive of Anthony Nolan.

Myth Busting

What is a stem cell transplant?

If a patient has a condition that affects their bone marrow or blood, then a stem cell transplant may be their best chance of survival. Doctors will give new, healthy stem cells to the patient via their bloodstream, where they begin to grow and create healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
