Black History Month

This year, we're raising awareness about why ethnically matched blood and organs matter.

This Black History Month we join the nation in recognising and celebrating the contribution that African and Caribbean people have made to our culture and way of life over many generations.

We will also be communicating this year's key message:

Ethnically matched blood and organs provide the best treatment.

We want to raise awareness of the growing need for Black blood and organ donors in an attempt to tackle the health inequalities that exist in our society. 

Get involved

Take a look at our dedicated campaigns pages on our Give Blood and Organ Donation websites, where throughout the month we'll be sharing our key messaging, celebrating Black pioneers of healthcare, and posting details of exciting activities and opportunities.
