As a member you will become part of our supportive community, and have access to our networking opportunities, member communication and resources. You’ll be joining a large and long-established specialist donor conception support organisation with members from the UK, Ireland and across the world!
DC Network supports donor conception families and people considering donor conception as a way to create or expand their family. Whether you are considering or have used sperm, egg, double or embryo donation, or used surrogacy and donation, we are here to offer support, resources and community. We welcome people in all family circumstances (single, couple, same-sex, heterosexual) in all walks of life, cultural, social and familial.
We have a research committee which reviews all the research requests to the Network to ensure that it is conducted appropriately and fits in with our members. For research enquiries or information please click the button.
From the very first year the charity was founded, nearly 30 years ago, the organisation has always run a conference twice a year to give members the opportunity to spend a day with other DC families and prospective families, focussed on DC topics. We know how important and valuable these events are.
Our workshops are open to non members and members. They offer a confidential space for people to explore hopes and fears in a structured, facilitated way. Numbers are restricted to ensure everyone can connect and get the most out of the event. Our facilitators all have DC children themselves as well as professional experience.
