About Us

Transplant Australia WA offers the opportunity for members to participate in social and recreational activities including picnics, theatre, movie outings, sporting events and to represent WA at the Australian Transplant Games.

Meetings are held regularly and Transplant Australia WA invites all those awaiting transplant and receiving dialysis treatment, recipients, living donors, family members of deceased donors and supporters to become involved. We encourage prospective members who may be interested in learning more about Transplant Australia to come along to a meeting or special event on a “come and try” basis. We have a wonderful supportive community here in the West and we always have a great time when we come together.

Newbies are most certainly welcome – the more the merrier as far as we’re concerned! Why not join us for our next meeting, or for our next trip down to beautiful Yallingup?

The TAWA committee has representatives from each membership group including donor family members, transplant recipients, kids, youth and a particularly active living donor membership. This ensures that the needs of all membership groups are catered for and that members in similar situations have the opportunity to share experiences.

We have a particularly active living donor membership base and living donors have their own annual social events to give members in similar situations the opportunity to share experiences.

Since a dedicated support group for children was established within Transplant Australia, many successful events have been held and TAWA specifically focuses on children and their families, in developing their profile and generating community and corporate support. TA Kids WA aims to improve the public’s attitude to organ donation so that ultimately children and adults alike will benefit from receiving a transplant sooner. We are very proud of our children’s program which incorporates social events, a scholarship program and weekend get aways for families.

Transplant Australia WA Branch invites you to contact a committee member at any time for information and we look forward to welcoming new members. See you at our next event!
