Transplant Australia WA offers the opportunity for members to participate in a range of social and recreational activities, including community events, group sporting activities, and to represent WA at the Australian Transplant Games

With representatives from each membership group including donor families, those awaiting transplantation, 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 sizzlesstreet appealsfestival stalls promoting organ and tissue donation, and Mall Yarns which aim to inspire more Aussies to join the Australian Organ Donor Register. We work closely with DonateLife to encourage people to register as organ donors and when possible we provide support to members in need.

Transplant Australia WA specifically focuses on sporting, recreation and social programmes,  including weekend getaways for families, regular social events, and participation of teams in community sporting events, as well as our own regular group health and fitness activities such as petanque and walking, with occasional lawn bowls, ten pin bowling and darts events.

We are also very proud of our Student Scholarship Program, which to date has assisted 13 children since its inception in 2011.

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