We're redesigning our website - we're keen for you to try it so we can hear your views on how it can be improved ahead of the official launch. Head on over to the HFEA BETA to see how it is shaping up.

For donor-conceived people & their parents

Getting information about your donor can be an emotional process. Think through how this knowledge could affect you and your family.

Information for past applicants

Filling an application form

Donors who donated anonymously before April 2005 have the right to remove their anonymity by re-registering to be identifiable.  If you previously applied for information from the HFEA register and your donor was anonymous, you can now check our information for past applicants page to see if they have since re-registered as identifiable.


The way we provide donor information is changing

From 1 October 2012 the HFEA will be changing the way it provides donor information to parents and donor-conceived people.
