Saving lives together

Partnerships are a vital part of our work

They help us to reach more people, increase the number of blood and organ donors, and save more lives. If you would like to get involved, please email us at

Help us encourage more people to give blood

Less than 3% of people actively give blood

What you need to know

Almost 5,000 people are needed to give blood every day to meet the needs of patients in England. So it’s crucial that we maintain supplies across all blood groups, especially those in greatest demand. 

To do this, we need to attract 135,000 new donors each year to replace those who can no longer donate for health or other reasons.

Our partners help us keep blood donation at the forefront of people’s minds, reaching new audiences and encouraging more life-saving donors.

Young donors needed

Can you help us recruit blood donors aged 17-35 years old to help us protect the blood supply of the future?

Black and Asian donors needed

We need more blood donors from the Black and South Asian communities to reflect the changing population and needs of patients. Sometimes it is beneficial for the patient to have blood from a similar ethnic background, as this increases the chances of getting the best match to blood type.

Help us encourage people to join the NHS Organ Donor Register

Every day across the UK, someone dies waiting for an organ transplant

What you need to know

Around 6,500 people in the UK are waiting for a transplant and every day someone who could have benefited from a transplant dies because there aren’t enough organ donors. While the majority of people support organ donation, only a third of the population have joined the NHS Organ Donor Register.

Our partners help us reach millions of people to change perceptions of organ donation and encourage people to register and talk about their decision with their families.

Join the nhs organ donor register

We need everyone who supports organ donation to register, but we also need to reach people from all parts of society, to ensure the register is representative of the UK population.
