You may have donated under the conditions of anonymity and thought that you would never be contacted again. However, you may be contacted as a result of an application to the Central Register by your offspring or their parents as they are entitled to apply for information about you.
Contact as a result of an application to the Central Register
Information about applying to the Central Register
Central Register Application Form
Some donors prefer to lodge information on the Voluntary Register rather than applying to the Central Register. This means if their offspring also applies to the Voluntary Register both parties will be contacted and information shared if both people agree.

Providing and receiving information about you and your donor-conceived offspring
You may have donated under the conditions of anonymity. You may have sometimes wondered whether children had been born and if so how many, what age and gender they are, and how old they might be. You may wonder whether they resemble you or whether you share personality traits.
While you may be curious to know more about your donor offspring, you may not have told your partner or children about your donation, which could complicate your feelings about the issue.
VARTA understands that there is a diversity of views held by those who donated. You have choices and and options for providing and receiving information.
