Registered Charity No: 252892 (England & Wales) SCO39245 (Scotland).

As the largest charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK, nothing is going to stop us in our urgent mission to end kidney disease.

Our kidneys are vital organs, helping keep our blood clean, chemically balanced and maintaining our body’s overall health. When your kidneys go wrong it is life changing.  

Kidney disease affects three million people in the UK. Treatments can be gruelling and currently there is no cure. No one should live in fear, anxiety and pain with this life-limiting condition.

And kidney disease does not discriminate - it affects all generations.

It can impact children especially hard. When children’s kidneys fail, they face a lifetime of kidney failure, with potentially severe consequences - it can affect their physical growth their social development. A transplant is not a cure, as it rarely lasts a lifetime.

Only research will end kidney disease. By leaving a gift to Kidney Research UK in your Will our fantastic doctors, nurses and scientists can continue their life-saving work.

We aim to prevent kidney disease by developing new ways to see it coming, and interventions to stop it happening. 

In 2017, Kidney Research UK and Kids Kidney Research merged to significantly increase paediatric kidney research to transform the lives of young people who need a cure for kidney disease.

Research can only happen with your support. Kidney disease ends here.
