The Right to Meet - You Answered Our Survey

20 January 2017 (updated June 2017)

Right now in Australia, communication between consenting Donor Families and Recipients is limited despite increasing numbers expressing a desire to meet in a less restricted and supported way, providing healing and hope, whilst still honouring the wishes of those who wish to retain their privacy.

We were overwhelmed to have received 544 survey responses on this issue which was  presented to the Australian Organ and Tissue Authority (OTA) and its associated organisations, asking them to review the regulation, policy and practice that govern this area at the recent Community Consultative Forum.

Please see the Autumn 2017 edition of our Newsletter for an article outlining the forum. The report is available to read here.
