Welcome to our NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) funded research project.

We work with university students from various degrees and ethnic backgrounds across the UK, to co-design and co-deliver interactive online events that provide a safe and respectful forum to openly discuss the impact of the changes in the law, misconceptions and clinical need for more donors especially from the Black, Asian and ethnic minorities communities. Why?

Millie Banerjee, Chairman of NHS Blood and Transplant says “Often the best match for a transplant comes from people of the same ethnic background, so it’s vital that more work is done to get the message out to people in those communities who aren’t yet on board with the organ donation message.”

The impact of our work will enable students to have conversations about the whole organ donation and transplantation pathway with friends and family so that more informed choices are registered.
