Dan Aid for schools

Thursday, March 3, 2011

Recently Christina Anderson, Chair and Founder of Dan Aid, came to see local MP Meg Munn to discuss progress that the campaign is having. Dan Aid is an awareness-raising voluntary organisation offering help and advice to young people about the health risks associated with body piercing.  Meg has done a lot of work with Christina and the campaign, including having the law changed to bring in more regulation about body piercing.


They have recently developed a Teaching Resource Pack, which can be used in school. It is designed to be accessible for schools and pupils, providing concise information that can be interesting and informative. It is designed to educate KS3 and 4 students about the dangers of body piercing and the risk of infection if it is not performed by a qualified and registered artist. 


The pack has received a lot of support in local schools in Meg’s constituency. The scheme has also gained the attention of Look North and Radio Sheffield.  However as this is not a government initiative funding is tight.

Meg said:


“The work Dan Aid is doing is important for young people throughout the UK. 


The information pack that Christina and her team have developed is superb; it has all the information to make it accessible for teachers and pupils. I hope it has huge success within schools.”
