Students and education

The new soft opt out system does not affect anyone under the age of 18. It may affect students who are studying in Wales.

We have produced a couple of documents to help explain the changes and how they affect students.

You can download these documents below. If you would like to order a printed copy, please e-mail organ.donation@wales.gsi.gov.uk.

We have worked with NHS Blood and Transplant to create a schools pack aimed at informing key stage 3 & 4 students about organ donation and encouraging them to discuss the subject.

The pack contains a lesson plan, activities, short case study films and guidance for teachers. You can access this via the WinZip file.
