Tissue donation can help thousands of people each year. Donated tissue such as skin, bones and eyes can save or dramatically improve the lives of many people suffering from illness or injury.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and their families, thousands of people every year receive life-transforming tissue transplants.

Registering to be a tissue donor is quick and easy. To be a donor after your death, you simply need to join the Organ Donor Register and tell your closest family and friends about your wishes.

To donate under our Bone Donation During Surgery Programme or Live Amniotic Membrane Donation Programme, find out more here.
