Patient Support

For over 40 years, The British Kidney Patient Association has been providing direct support to kidney patients, making a practical difference every day to their quality of life and the lives of their families.

We provide support to around 100 patients every week through our patient grant programme, holiday grants, counselling service, patient advocacy service, as well as our funding to improve care services. So whether its financial, practical or emotional support, we’re here to give our total support to help improve the quality of life for everyone affected by kidney disease.

JOIN OUR COMMUNITY


Whilst doctors and nurses are in place to provide treatment, there may be times when sharing feelings around the highs and lows of life with others in similar situations can be a real help. We have an active online community where you can find support and advice from people who understand your situation.
