About Kidney Care UK
3.5 million people in the UK have chronic kidney disease (CKD), a diagnosis that can turn your world upside down.
For almost 50 years, Kidney Care UK has been at the forefront of supporting people with kidney disease. From our early days when we campaigned to introduce donor cards in the UK, we have worked hard to support and represent the interests of everyone affected by this lifelong condition. We provide practical, emotional, and financial support for individuals and their families, while also working with healthcare professionals to improve care services and campaign for change.
Kidney disease can affect anyone and there is no cure. We are here for the young and the old, for those struggling to make ends meet, for families and loved ones. We fight tirelessly, giving our total support, to improve the lives of kidney patients and their families.
We’ve grown significantly over the past five years. But this is just the start – we want to grow our income significantly in the next three years. We have to – there are so many people who need us.
We’ve been making quite a splash recently – our ‘Cost of Staying Alive Report’ made the front cover of The Guardian last year, and the follow up ‘Left Out in the Cold’ report was recently featured on Sky News and in the Evening Standard. Our ‘Priced Out of Existence’ campaign was shown on the BBC 6 o’clock and 10 o’clock News and referenced by media across the UK.
Will you join us and help ensure that no one faces kidney disease alone?
