About Us

The Donor Conceived Register (DCR) falls under the National Gamete Donation Service, as funded by the Department of Health and managed by the National Gamete Donation Trust (NGDT).

The National Gamete Donation Trust was set up in 1998 as a national government-funded charity to raise awareness of and seek ways to alleviate the national shortage of gamete (sperm, egg and embryo) donors. We manage the DCR linking donors, people conceived by donation and their siblings, ensuring that the appropriate testing, support and advice is available (since 1 April 2013; amended objectives 2012).

The NGDT is a Registered Charity No: 1163980
