Education volunteers presenters make sure potential lifesavers know the facts about donation by delivering our education programme, The Hero Project.

We are looking for people who are positive about young people and believe that they can make a difference. Education volunteers deliver inspiring presentations to young people aged 16+ in a variety of settings from schools and sixth forms to colleges and youth groups (either in person or online).

Our presentations aren't a hard sell, but they educate all young people about stem cell, blood and organ donation and encourage them to make an informed decision about donation based on facts, not myths!
