Faith and donation


The major religions in the UK support the idea of blood and organ donation and transplantation. Faith should not be a barrier to donation. Help us to share faith leaders' views and improve understanding of the role of faith in blood and organ donation.

Religion is no barrier to donation

We are working with church and faith leaders to spread the message that becoming a donor is an important part of caring for the lives of others. Please use the faith-related videos, graphics and leaflets available to download on this page in your support of donation. 

Church campaign encourages more black donors

We have joined with black Christian churches across England, to encourage more black donors to register, book an appointment and give blood. Please view and share the video of Reverend Rose Hudson Wilkin below.

Use our videos to help people learn about the perspectives of organ donation in Islam

Organ donation and religion

Use our videos to help people understand more about organ donation and religion. 

The films show one of our specialist nurses talking about how she has supported families from many different faiths through the organ donation process and addressing a concern about whether your body is disfigured if you donate after death.
