Does my religion support it?

All the major religions in the UK support the principles of organ and tissue donation and transplantation, accepting that organ and tissue donation is an individual choice. 

It is very important that people from all backgrounds donate organs, as there is a much better success rate when transplants are carried out within the same ethnic group.

Black and Asian people are twice as likely to need a kidney transplant than white people, so there is an even greater need for more black and Asian donors.

Supporting your faith and beliefs

We are committed to supporting your faith and beliefs throughout the organ or tissue donation process.

If you record a decision to become an organ and tissue donor, you can also record on the register whether your faith/belief is important and should be considered as part of the donation discussion.
