Community organisations play a very important role within the organ and tissue donation and transplantation sector. The unique group of organisations provide both essential awareness events to the Australian community as well as acting as advocates for the community, within the clinical sector and with government.
Community organisations represent and support donor families, transplant recipients and even families awaiting transplantation. Some have national coverage, while others are state focused or more local.
All community organisations listed below, have signed up to the Authority Communications Charter and Framework, committing to the common goal of enabling the Australian community to discover, decide and discuss organ and tissue donation for transplantation.
