You've updated your details. Now please talk to your family

Your family will always be involved before organ donation goes ahead, and they could override your decision if they aren’t sure what you want. So, talk to them and leave them certain.

Tips to help you talk to your loved ones about organ donation

Tip 1 - Relax

Take your time. Approach it like you would a normal conversation. Perhaps chat over a cup of tea or when you’re out for a walk together. Start gently.

Tip 2 - Use prompts

Download one of our organ donor cards and use it as a prompt to start talking, or use our pages to find out some key information.

Tip 3 - Find a real life story

Share one of the stories in the section below and explain how you came to your decision, to help someone to live longer, or to give them better quality of life.
