Kidney disease can leave you feeling low, isolated and trapped at times. You may rely on benefits to get by and it’s not easy when illness stops you working and has a real impact on family life.
We give grants to individuals and families towards the cost of a basic holiday in the UK or overseas. The grant can be used to cover the total cost if it is modest or it can be used as a contribution towards the final cost.
Applying for a holiday grant
If you’re a social worker or member of a kidney care team applying on behalf of a patient, you can call 01420 541424 with any questions you may have.
Please note that processing times for applications can be up to 8 weeks so we suggest that you plan well in advance if you are applying to Kidney Care UK for a holiday grant.
We cannot reimburse patients for holidays that have already been paid for. Please apply for a grant before booking your holiday.
How to apply
You'll need to contact your kidney unit social worker or a member of your kidney care team as all applications for grants should come to us on a grant application form completed with their input.
You have no idea what you've done for me and my family - to go on our first family holiday together was amazing. We were over the moon.Jamie Kidney patient and holiday grant recipient
