If you need help with the extra costs that living with kidney disease can bring, we may be able to offer financial support.
An individual grant could help you with the cost of
- utility bills
- car insurance
- the purchase of domestic goods like washing machines and cookers
- mobility aids.
We may also be able to contribute towards the expenses of an educational or job opportunity.
Our grants are intended to avert a crisis, help you make a purchase to improve your quality of life or contribute towards the cost of a holiday.
Grants are available to dialysis patients and families on low income and transplant patients and those receiving conservative care (if health and quality of life is being seriously affected by your renal condition).
