The Australian Transplant Games would not be possible without all of our wonderful volunteers. Volunteering at the Games is a great way to get involved and celebrate the Gift of Life.

Volunteers come from all walks of life – health care professionals, physiotherapists, massage therapists, communications specialists, photographers, videographers, retirees, students, donor families, living donors, people who like to give back to their community, and anyone else touched by the greatest gift – organ and tissue donation.

A comprehensive list of how you can get involved as a volunteer is available below.
