Organ Donation Week

It's Organ Donation Week!

Organ Donation Week runs from 26 September to 2 October and is a celebration of organ and tissue donation and transplantation. We encourage everyone to register an organ donation decision and let loved ones know that decision.

#OrganDonationWeek is a celebration of organ and tissue donation and transplantation which saves and transforms hundreds of lives each year.

The aim of Organ Donation Week is to encourage conversations across generations to get everyone talking about organ donation and to inspire new registrations to the NHS Organ Donor Register.

Families are always involved before organ donation goes ahead, so we encourage everyone in the family, whatever their age, to have a conversation about organ donation, so that if the time comes your family are certain about what you want.

That conversation could be the most powerful thing you ever do to help save lives.

Follow @OrganDonationNI on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to find out more, get involved, or share your Organ Donation Week activities!
