Filming or recording in our centres

If you'd like to film or record within our donor or processing centres, let's talk about it. Reach out to the relevant Media and Communications Manager, listed below. 

We ask for at least one week's notice (excluding media outlets) in writing or by phone. Look forward to seeing you there.


Personal use

Don't forget to be safe while taking a photo or video for personal use, particularly if it is mid-donation! It's our priority to keep you safe and well.

If there are staff or other donors in frame, it's best not to take the photo. We're so thankful for our staff and donors, and value their privacy as they give the gift of life.
