We are the UK’s leading kidney patient support charity, providing practical, financial and emotional support for kidney patients and their families and campaigning to improve care services across the UK. We provide support for more than 100 patients every week and invest over £3 million each year in patient grants. We’re here to give our total support to help improve the quality of life for everyone affected by kidney disease.
Support, advice and guidance
- Our trained Advocacy Officers are ready to help with local issues around treatment choice, patient transport and benefit concerns.
- Our counselling support team offers free telephone counselling.
- We have lots of information on many aspects of kidney disease, including the conditions themselves, diagnosis, treatment, and practical information about life with kidney disease.
Holidays and respite breaks
We provide grants for those unable to fund a holiday or short break away from the monotony of kidney disease, as well as supporting Dialysis Swap - a UK scheme to help patients find dialysis away from base.
