DonateLife ACT, formerly called the ACT Organ and Tissue Donation Service, coordinates all organ and tissue donor activities across the ACT and region. It works with hospitals and hospital-based organ and tissue donation medical specialists and nurses across the ACT and region to provide professional donation services and encourage best practice to increase donation rates.
The agency aims to raise awareness about organ and tissue donation, encourage discussion about donation, offer compassionate support to donor families and manage effective services in organ and tissue donation.
DonateLife ACT now coordinates a pool of volunteers. These volunteers participate in community education and awareness raising activities in the ACT and region with support from DonateLife ACT staff.Members of the local community and individuals from the various community organisations in the organ and tissue donation sector in the ACT and region are encouraged to join the volunteer program.
