Local Government Blood Challenge

Local Government Blood Challenge

If you work in local government, donate blood as part of our Local Government Blood Challenge from 1 July - 30 September. Ready, set... give!

Are you ready for the Local Government Blood Challenge? It’s set to be a big one. Just give blood or plasma between 1 July and 30 September to get involved.

In the past, this challenge has seen councils, directorates and shires around the country compete to save the most lives. 

Right now, demand for blood is at its highest level in over a decade, with hospitals using more blood than they did compared to the last two years.

In fact, that’s why we’ve made a small change.

To help more Aussie patients, we're asking councils, directorates and shires to take part again, and this year, the challenge is open to all government departments and members of the community too. Competition is going to be fierce!
