Donor Families Australia Inc.
An independent support
and advocacy network
Let organ/tissue donor families
"say their loved ones' name".
DFA are conducting a National Petition to change the Human Tissue Act in each State and Territory to allow Donor Families the right to control their own Donor Hero's information relating to their organ/tissue donation.
I WONDER IF?

New OTA letter correspondence proceedures implemented!!!
This joint communique between DFA and the OTA on letter writing is a significant document involving Donor Families, Recipients and the OTA . A truly consultative approach has been taken to put in place a letter writing system that is based on the needs of Donor Families and Recipients.
Losing someone we love is one of the hardest things we may ever have to live with
Formed in 2013, Donor Families Australia Inc. is a national member-based independent support and advocacy group comprising families who have donated their loved ones’ organs and tissue. It is the only incorporated organisation of its kind in Australia specifically dedicated to Donor Families.
Membership is free and gives donor families a voice:
To speak with and to support each other.
To let those who formulate organ and tissue donation policy know what is important to Donor Families.
To connect the community to a group that knows the experience of donation so they might come to a true understanding of what it is all about.
