Over 100 people join the APPG Inquiry report launch


A week ago today, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Ethnicity Transplantation and Transfusion launched the inquiry report: ‘Where are our nation’s donors?’ with more than 100 people in attendance.

The launch followed a number of meetings with key stakeholders prior to the event and also some good news that Buckinghamshire New University had received funding approval for an evidence based research study on the enablers and blockers to people from mixed heritage and minority ethnic communities becoming blood and stem cell donors.

Included within this post are some photographs from the event. For more photographs and also a list of those who confirmed attendance prior to the launch, please click here.

What do we want to come out of our inquiry?

More donors in general, more donors from mixed heritage and ethnic minority communities in particular, greater visibility of donors within UK society, and for our healthcare services to be attuned to the needs of our whole population.

If you have ideas on what you can do to help the APPG achieve its aims, please get in touch via email:

Thank you.
