Do I qualify?

  • in receipt of Housing Benefit or Council Tax Support, or Universal Credit

and meet one of the following criteria:

  • The stem cells from your baby, could be used to treat your baby, or another member of the family, for a medically proven treatment. A specialist’s recommendation would be necessary.
  • there is any cancer in the immediate family.

For some conditions or diseases it is not recommended that the stem cells are collected or used to treat someone else (for allogeneic use). We will of course advise you if this is the case. If your application is accepted we will contact you to arrange to set up the service for you.
