FILM: Known Unknowns - The Pros, Cons and Consequences of Known Donation (Progress Educational Trust)

Released on Monday, this film documents the recent PET event 'Known Unknowns: The Pros, Cons and Consequences of Known Donation’. DCN Director Nina Barnsley spoke at the event, alongside speakers from the Morgan Centre, Pride Angel and NGA Law. While most clinic donors are now 'ID release', with DC offspring able to access identifying information on reaching 18, DNA testing and the growth in known donor arrangements mean donors can potentially be identified without their knowledge or consent. The event looked at what can be learnt from recipients and donors (and DC children and donors) who know each other; why some choose online platforms; and what support, if any, should be offered to those forming such arrangements and to the children that result.
