Encourage schools to use our teaching resources
Help us to educate young people about organ and tissue donation
Many campaigners and supporters get in touch with NHS Blood and Transplant to ask what they can do to promote donation in their local area.
One thing that you can do is help encourage schools in your area to use our free organ donation teaching resources in their classrooms.
Our teaching resources
From spring 2020, the law around organ donation in England is changing. Working with teachers and clinicians, we have developed a portfolio of free resources including lesson plans and activities aimed at students aged between 11 and 16 (Key Stage 3 and 4 students).
The resources have been designed to educate young people about organ and tissue donation, their organ donation choices and how the law will affect them when they turn 18 so they can make an informed decision.
How to get started
We have produced a template letter, that you can amend or adapt, to send to schools in your area to encourage them to incorporate the teaching resources into their lesson planning. You could also send it to education leads in your local councils.
