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

With representatives from each membership group including donor families, transplant recipients and a particularly active living donor membership, the needs of all groups are catered for, and members in similar situations have the opportunity to share experiences.

The TAWA committee is extremely active in the community, holding Sausage Sizzles, Street Appeals, festival stalls promoting organ and tissue donation, and Mall Yarns which aim to inspire more Aussies to join the Australian Organ Donor Register.

Transplant Australia WA specifically focuses on children and their families, in developing their profile and generating community and corporate support. We are very proud of our children’s program which incorporates social events, a scholarship program and weekend getaways for families.

Transplant Australia WA invites all those awaiting transplant, receiving dialysis treatment, recipients, living donors, family members of deceased donors, supporters and those who may be interested in learning more about Transplant Australia to come along to a meeting/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.

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