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.
