Project Description

GIVING THE GIFE OF LIFE

The Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill received Royal Assent on 15 March 2019. It becomes the Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Act 2019 and implemented from 2020.

In a recent survey published by NHSBT, 34% of adults from BAME communities supported organ donation, 33% opposed organ donation and 33% had not formed a view. The same survey asked about the barriers to organ donation. The top reason given, by 27% of adults from the BAME background, was because organ donation was perceived as a being “against my culture and religion”.

We have teamed up with the NHS to discuss organ donation with RAFFA team members visiting our location churches to discuss Deemed Consent.
