Download our materials to get people talking about organ donation

Talking to your family about organ donation can help prevent a deadly shortage of donors.

We need more people in London to talk about organ donation to increase the number of transplants taking place. 

Our Words Saves Lives campaign starts in January 2018 and aims to encourage people to share their donation decision with their family.

A reluctance to talk about organ donation is contributing to a deadly shortage of organs and leaving families to make a difficult decision when someone they love dies. 

Three people die every day waiting for an organ.

We can change that, though we need your support to get people talking.

Please share our videos! 

We also have a play-list of videos to help people learn about the lifesaving impact donors have, how it feels to wait for a transplant and the comfort organ donation brings to grieving families.  

You can share or embed these videos on your own sites and channels.
