How to join

Strength to Give

If you are between the ages of 18-30 and hold a Medicare card, you may be eligible to participate in our pilot project STRENGTH TO GIVE. Click here to find out more about the campaign and learn how you can help.


If you are between 18 and 45 years old, in good health, want to donate blood and meet the eligibility criteria, call the Australian Red Cross Lifeblood on 13 14 95 to make an appointment to donate blood and join the registry.

When you go to donate blood ask the nurse at reception for the ABMDR enrolment form and complete this document before donating blood.

When donating blood,  you will be asked to make a blood donation of 470 mL and an additional 20-30 mL of this will be collected to determine your tissue type.

For more information check the ABMDR Donor Brochure. The brochures are available at any Lifeblood Donor Centre. Click here to check  the address of  the Lifeblood donor centre near your area.

Welcome to the registry

Most likely, the next time the ABMDR will contact you will be if you are identified as a suitable match for a patient.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your name, address and contact details so that we can find you as quickly as possible if you are a suitable match.
