Organ donation campaigns

About campaigns

We campaign to:

  • promote public awareness about organ donation and transplant
  • encourage people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register
  • encourage people to share their donation decision with their family and friends

We constantly need organs.

In the UK

  • Around 10,000 people need a transplant but without donors we cannot help them
  • Fewer than 6,000 people each year die in circumstances where they can donate their organs

Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities

People from the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities will wait a year longer for a kidney transplant than white people

If you die without registering to donate your organs, we could ask your next of kin to make the decision for you.

So a key element of our campaign is informing people not just to join the register but to tell their family about their decision.

It's a conversation that could help save lives.

Help us spread the word
