Take time to talk about organ donation

Take time to discuss your decision - whatever that may be - with your loved ones.

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

Fewer than half of families agree to donation going ahead if they are unaware of their loved one’s decision to be a donor. This rises to over nine out of 10 when the decision to be an organ donor is known.

Don’t leave it too late to talk about organ donation.

Let's talk about it

We asked people what they talk to their family about, and what is off limits! One thing we should all be talking about is organ donation.

It doesn't have to be a difficult conversation
