LLGL is a small charity with almost all work done voluntarily plus a small amount of paid administrative support. We pride ourselves on being able to channel all funds directly into improving the lives of transplant patients by way of raising awareness of the cause and supporting research activities. We also contribute to discussions around strategy and long-term activities to support our aims with both NHSBT and other charities in the same field, eg The Donor Family Network (among others).
We look to achieve our aims by way of using creativity, resourcefulness and voluntary support to maximise our reach. The nature of our organisation allows everyone to get involved and learn new skills, if required.
We have an excellent team, all of whom give their time and effort (and often that of their friends and family too) to promote a cause that has personally affected us all.
We are always looking for more people with the same motivation and time to help drive us forward. If you are interested in joining our team, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include details of your connection to organ donation.
The board of Trustees do a great deal of the day-to-day running of the charity (between their full time jobs). They are assisted by a team of volunteers and advocates, and are eternally grateful for their help!
All those involved with the charity have been personally involved within the transplant community in some way.
If you'd like to get involved, please don't hesitate to drop us an email email@example.com and let us know what how you'd like to help.
Our Ambassadors are people who are desperately hoping for that gift of life, but who somehow find the strength to campaign for awareness to help both themselves and others whilst they wait. Our Ambassadors act as spokespeople, representing life on the list and sharing their hopes and fears with the wider public to educate and raise awareness. Once an Ambassador (hopefully) receives their transplant and is feeling well enough, they move to our team of Advocates. These people are inspirational and we feel privileged to have them as part of the LLGL team.
