Bright Red Secures £10,000 of National Lottery Funding

We are delighted to share the news that we have recently secured £10,000 of National Lottery Funding to help with the creation of our ‘Fighting Blood Cancer’ App, which will be made in collaboration with local charity Anxious Minds.
As part of our ongoing commitment to making the north the best place for blood cancer patients, we felt it was vital that we looked for something to help a growing issue with patients – anxiety. Anxiety can be a difficult issue to address. Mental health issues is an area which is seriously underfunded across the board, so patients who need help are often waiting for a few days to be seen, other patients are not able to attend support groups. This means that often the opportunity to help patients can be lost, and anxiety can escalate.
What we want to do with the app is bridge the gap, and help patients build skills and reduce anxiety on their own, until they can be supported further. We also hope that by introducing this we will be able to encourage users to be more open to the idea of seeking help for anxiety and signpost them to specialist support groups when they are well enough.
We are excited to get started on this project!
