How we do it

Our patient support group - We set up our first lupus patient support group in Staffordshire. The group meets regularly and provide the opportunity for people living with lupus to meet, share experiences and support each. We aim to establish more support groups to help more people with lupus. 
Information advice line - Our information advice line provides support and information for those affected by lupus, their family and friends. Call us on FREEPHONE 0800 633 5118 Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm. Outside of these hours please email us.
Our online community - Through Twitter and Facebook we provide support and information to lupus patients and put them in touch with others who find themselves in a similar situation.

The Hibbs Lupus Trust Awareness

Lupus warrior flare pack

We have been working on some care packs for lupus warriors experiencing a flare.

Knowing that it can be the little things that make a difference when the force of a flare strikes, we hope these packs will bring a little relief and a smile to someone going through a tough time.  

You can nominate someone who you would like to send a care pack to and we will do the rest. Just let us know a few details and we can tailor the pack.

Providing equipment

The money that we raise through donations, challenge events and fundraising in the community helps to fund equipment that wouldn’t otherwise be provided at NHS hospitals.

We have donated a £3,000 vital signs monitor and are now preparing to purchase a Nailfold Videocapillarosope for Cannock Hospital at a cost of £20,000 that will help in the early diagnosis of lupus and other connective tissue diseases.

How we are funded

We rely completely on donations from individuals and organisations to fund our work and without the help of people like you - running, cycling, jumping and baking for us, our work wouldn’t be possible. 
We receive no government funding.
