The Anthony Nolan Trust is a UKmarker charity that focuses on leukaemia and bone marrow transplantation. It manages and recruits donors to one of the two bone marrow registers in the United Kingdom; the other register is the British Bone Marrow Registry run by the National Blood Service. It also carries out pioneering research to help make bone marrow transplants more effective.

The charity is named after Anthony Nolan (born 1971, died 1979), who did not suffer from leukaemia but from Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome, a rare inherited blood disorder. It was founded by Anthony's mother Shirley (1942-2002) in 1974 as the "Anthony Nolan Register". Initially based at the Westminster Children's Hospitalmarker, it moved to St Mary Abbot's Hospital in 1978 and to its present offices, laboratory and research institute in north London. The charity was renamed in 2001 to the "Anthony Nolan Trust".

To help take back more lives from leukaemia, The Anthony Nolan Trust constantly needs more people aged 18 - 40 to join its bone marrow register, especially young men and people from black and minority ethnic communities. It is also the only register in the UK to allow gay men to join, subject to their normal criteria for inclusion.

The Midland Metro has a tram named after Anthony Nolan.
