What is a registration drive?
When there is an opportunity to address a large audience, we can use your platform to educate and raise awareness on the challenges individuals face living with blood cancer and other illnesses where a stem cell, blood or organ donor is required to save their lives.
Attendees at ACLT donor registration drives have the opportunity to join all three donor registers: blood, organ (living and deceased) and stem cell (bone marrow).
2018 Registration drive results
This year (2018) ACLT attended nearly 200+ fundraisers and awareness events, with many providing ACLT the opportunity to host donor registration drives. We’ve worked with universities, colleges, schools, churches, corporate organisations, music concerts, theatre nights, comedy shows. We worked in conjunction with the KickOff@3, MET Police, Black Police Association, Merseyside and Cheshire Police, Religious Sector, Schools, Colleges, Universities, American Airlines and many other groups and organisations.

How we register donors
There are a number of ways we register potential donors at drives.
You will be asked to complete a brief blood donation application form. ACLT will send the completed form back to NHS Blood & Transplant on your behalf. At a later date you will receive (in the post) a letter from NHS Blood & Transplant inviting you to call them on +44 (0) 300 123 23 23 to book an appointment to donate blood at a blood donor centre at a convenient location close to your home, place of work or education establishment.
For more information, see our blood donation page.
You can register as a deceased organ donor by completing a short form. That’s it! Within the month you should receive your Organ Donor card via the post. Please ensure you inform your next of kin and loved ones of your wish to donate your organ/s.
For more information, see our organ donation page.
The majority of living organ donations are kidney transplants. Unlike many other organs, we only need one kidney to survive, so these transfers can be done while the donor is alive.
The UK’s living donation register has an extremely low number of BAME donors: one that is disproportionate to the number of people in need. Only 17 people from the Black community came forward as a donors last year. Right now, if your kidneys fail and you are Black, you’ll wait on average three years for a new one.
At our drives, individuals interested in registering will be asked for a few details, which we’ll use to follow up with them at a later date.
For more information on signing up, see our organ donation page.
Stem cell donation
There are three ways you can join the stem cell register.
For more information, see our stem cell donation page.
Registration outside of drives
We also welcome single signups in person. To do this, just give us a ring on +44 (0) 203 757 7700 or email on email@example.com and we’ll arrange a time to talk things through. We can accommodate office appointments from Monday to Friday, 10am till 4pm.
If you’re not ready to make a decision, you can request more information is sent to you by signing up to our Interested Register. For more information, see our donations pages: blood, deceased organ donation, living organ donation, or stem cell donation.
