Donor Recruitment - Registering Lifesavers!

Donor Registration Events

We work with friends and families of patients, as well as with local communities and volunteers to inspire and encourage people in the patient's area to register as potential blood stem cell donors.

Perhaps you know a company who would like to get involved, or would you like to hold a registration event at your work place?

Our Donor Recruitment Managers work with you every step of the way, providing training, materials and ongoing help and support.

We would love to hear from you if you are interested in registering people as potential blood stem cell donors in your local community.

We registered 125,500 donors in the UK in 2018!

Start an Appeal for a Blood Stem Cell Donor

Are you, or is someone you know, suffering from a blood cancer like leukaemia, myeloma or lymphoma?

Sharing your experience about what it means to be in need of a blood stem cell donation can really motivate others to register as potential lifesavers. DKMS can help with online appeals, as well as by organising registration events to increase the number of potential blood stem cell donors in the UK. Our vision is that one day a matching donor can be found for everyone in need.

If you would like further information on how DKMS can support you, please contact our Donor Recruitment team by emailing

Student Volunteers

Do you know a student who would be an ideal Ambassador at their University?

Our student ambassadors arrange donor recruitment events on campus to register fellow students and staff as potential blood stem cell donors, gaining valuable skills and experience in the process.
