One of our Trustees, Dr Yau Thum (https://seedtrust.org.uk/about-seed/trustee-biographies/) has kindly offered to give remote consultations to any SEED Trust enquirer free of charge in exchange for a donation to our charity.

We are extremely grateful to him as we are a struggling charity with no income!  The usual charge for a consultation with Dr Thum is £250; we’d be very grateful for any contribution you felt able to give to SEED to enable us to continue our essential work.

If you would like to have a consultation with Dr Thum, please contact him direct on

We are pleased to work with the Donor Conception Network (https://www.dcnetwork.org/) in providing access to their range of books for donors to help them talk to their children about their donation.

Our work together also helps us generate income – we receive a donation from every Donor book sold this way.

The Donor Conception Network also has a full range of over 30 books for people considering donor conception, parents of donor conceived, donor conceived children and for those who have used surrogacy. Please go to https://www.dcnetwork.org/catalog to find out more.
