About Donor Families Australia

Who is Donor Families Australia?

Losing someone we love is one of the hardest things we may ever have to live with.


Formed in 2013, Donor Families Australia 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 organisation of its kind in Australia specifically dedicated to Donor Families. Download our brochure: About Us
