Welcome to Transplant Australia – the national community voice celebrating the greatest gift of all! For more than 30 years Transplant Australia has been helping transplant recipients, donor families, living donors, carers, health care professionals and supporters to celebrate the gift of life. Transplant Australia exists to make the most of life – promoting the life-saving benefits of organ and tissue donation to the Australian public and supporting those most vulnerable through their journey back to the fullness of life.
Transplant Australia is a membership-based organisation of those affected by donation or transplantation. In fact, our success has seen us grow to be the largest organisation of our kind in the world. We have a mission to be a strong advocate for best practice in the organ and tissue donation sector, with a focus on ensuring the reform of donation in this country is given every chance of success at both national and state level, and representing transplant recipients and their ongoing needs. A fundamental objective of Transplant Australia is to promote the life saving benefits of organ and tissue donation to the Australian public. We achieve this with a range of community activities and through various media and public relations activities.
Advocacy – we are also your voice in arguing for improvements to donation, helping to ensure the reform of donation in this country is given every chance of success at both national and state level, and representing transplant recipients and their ongoing needs.
Transplant Australia offers our members the opportunity to join a national community of those touched by transplantation. Our members are invited to the range of events we stage, including the Australian Transplant Games, as well as the opportunity to engage with other members all with the shared goal of promoting donation. We couldn’t have made the achievements within the advocacy and promotion of organ and tissue donation in Australia without our volunteers, who are all members of Transplant Australia. Our members are the backbone of our organisation, and assist us to demonstrate the living proof of organ and tissue donation.There is something for everyone at Transplant Australia. We hope you will join us to celebrate the greatest gift of all!
