Children at session

Share

We welcome and value all donors young and old, but when considering children attending sessions we must ensure:

  • Safety of the child
  • Safety of the donor
  • Safety of other donors in attendance 
  • Safety of clinic staff 

Children under 14 years of age can attend a session under the following circumstances:

The child must be accompanied, at all times, by a parent, carer or guardian who is not scheduled to donate.

If both adults accompanying the child wish to donate, please ensure there is at least an hour between appointments to ensure the child is not left unattended

We will try our very best to provide seating. Our session layout is currently under active review due to a recent change in social distancing guidelines. Please bear with us as we work through this process. This means seating availability can vary.

Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you.
