Welcome to the Donor Family Network

We have developed a National Memorial to organ and tissue donors and recipients, sited at the National Arboretum at Alrewas, near Lichfield in Staffordshire.


We hold an annual service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving, together with family gatherings. We are involved in all aspects of transplantation, sitting on numerous committees. We are also an integral part of the British Transplant Games.

Please take a moment to have a look around our new website to discover more about what we do and how you can help support us, and how we can support donors, recipients, and their families.
