Actively promoting organ donation
Transplant Sport are the largest national charity promoting active recovery for transplant recipients and increasing awareness of the benefits of organ donation. We actively promote the importance of more people telling their family and friends they wish to donate, so that families do not refuse to give consent because of a lack of knowledge.
Transplant Sport is committed to increasing the family consent rate from 60% to 80% by 2020 and encouraging all to join the NHS Organ Donor Register.
Our aims are to:
- Raise awareness of the need for organ donation
- Encourage transplant recipients to lead active lifestyles
- Show appreciation for and remember donors and their families
We organise sport and social events for members to connect with others who have had a transplant. We encourage members to get fit and active whilst celebrating their return to health.
Post-transplant fitness is essential for a healthy future. Our events help members to engage in sport and social activity whilst promoting the donor register. Members get to enjoy the gift of life they have received and share experiences with each other.
