The Turnbull Government has not funded the Supported Leave for Organ Donors program beyond June 30 – a program that supports Australians to give the gift of life by becoming a living organ donor.
The Government has said that funding will cease on June 30. As we approach the Budget, the Government has the chance to guarantee funding for this program but we need your help to make it happen.
Sign our petition and help put pressure on the government to guarantee this vital program.
Some living donors may be required to take leave without pay, or may exhaust their paid leave entitlements. This can lead to financial stress and donors may feel pressured to return to work – that’s why this program is really important.
We know there are families currently undergoing the living organ donor process who are only just learning that the funding will cease.
With less than three months left until the funding ends, families going through this process need certainty now and the Government can’t string them along any longer.
