All the major religions of the UK support the principles of organ donation and transplantation. However, within each religion there are different schools of thought, which means that views may differ. All the major religions accept that organ donation is an individual choice.
NHSBT has worked closely with religious leaders of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism to research and produce a series of leaflets explaining organ donation and religious viewpoints and principles.
Leaflets on specific religions
Leaflets are available which focus on each of the six major religions in the UK.
You can download these leaflets from the links to the right of this page or order them free of charge from our campaign catalogue here.
Engagement with faith leaders and communities is a vital aspect of our strategy to raise awareness of organ donation and transplantation in the UK. We will continue to work with faith groups to increase awareness and build trust, whilst providing the information needed to dispel myths and encourage debate and discussion. As part of our continuing strategy, we are actively seeking to develop partnerships through which we aim to provide the necessary information, guidance and promotional materials wherever possible, to allow faith groups to actively promote awareness of organ donation through their networks and communities.
