Organ Donation Week runs between September 3rd and 9th, and this year we’re encouraging people to share their organ donation decision with their families.

Together with hospitals, charities and supporters of organ donation we’re highlighting that words save lives and the more people talking about organ donation with their families the better.

Many people don’t realise that family support is needed for organ donations to go ahead.

Do your family know whether you would like to be an organ donor? Have you ever talked about organ donation with them? If not, chat to them about it during Organ Donation Week! It makes a difficult situation easier when families have already had a conversation about organ donation.

If you are planning activity in your local area, you can find some tips, guidance and assets for promoting organ donation on our Promoting Donation Hub here: https://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/get-involved/promoting-donation-hub/download-digital-materials/words-save-lives/

Look out for our special Organ Donation Week content on social media and share it to help spread the word too!
