After months of planning we are very excited to be launching our Organ Donation Schools Education Programme this week. We will be running sessions at Hastings, Wigston Academy and The Lancaster Academy.
Our programme will focus on educating the next generation on the facts about organ donation and the actual process that a donor and a family go through. This will then enable them to make an informed decision about what they want to do. We will also be pushing the message of ‘organ donation- start the conversation’ so that regardless of their decision they share that conversation with their loved ones.
From our experience, there continues to be a lack of education and discussion surrounding the actual donation process and this is something that holds people back from making that decision. Hopefully our programme will help develop understanding and help influence people one way or another.
We also look forward to releasing our new Organ Donation Film next Sunday.
