Help to create a family

The truth is, many couples are simply unable to have a family of their own. The support and goodwill of men who are willing to donate sperm is invaluable.

Facts and figures

Why is sperm donation so crucial?

Between 2013 and 2018, the number of treatment cycles using donor sperm increased by 22%. However, the number of new donor registrations only increased by 9% - which means there simply are not enough donors to meet the demand. In 2017, only 24.5% of the treatments undertaken in the UK used UK sperm donors. The rest was imported from overseas. 36% used imported Danish donors, and 37% used imported USA donors. In 2017, only 29 Indian Asian, 11 Chinese and less than 5 Afro-Caribbean men registered as sperm donors in the UK.

The process

How it works


Ready to get started?

We’d love to know a little more about you, so please fill in the enquiry form and a member of our team will get right back to you!


Now we've been introduced...

We’d like to invite you in to meet us. This is when we will ask you to produce a sample, so we can see if your sperm count is suitable for the donation programme.


Fingers crossed

Our team of scientists then carefully assess your sample, and we'll let you know if we can accept you onto the donation programme. (We all keep our fingers crossed at this stage!)


You're almost there

If you’ve made it this far, you're doing really well! Before we can move on, we just need to undertake some more in-depth medical screening.


It's donation time

The wait is finally over. If you've made it to this point, we're now ready to get you started with your regular donations (all expenses paid!)


Once you're done

Relax – after the final donation, we just need you to pop back for one final blood test in 6 months' time.

About 800 babies are born every year in the UK as a result of donor sperm. Approx 40% of recipients are heterosexual couples, 40% are same sex couples and 20% are single women.

Donors can find out about the outcome of their donations - the number of babies born, the year they were born and the sex of the child.

We’re currently in need of donors from a variety of ethnic groups. There’s a shortage in the UK of donors from different ethnicities, meaning recipients have a limited choice of donor.
