Kidney Research UK

Charity description

Kidney Research UK logo
Kidney Research UK is the largest funder in the United Kingdom dedicated to supporting research into kidney disease – a potentially fatal illness for which there is currently no cure.

More than three million people in the UK are currently affected by some form of kidney disease, with a further three million unknowingly at risk of developing the condition.

Kidney Research UK is dedicated to substantially reducing these numbers through funding research into kidney disease and by generating greater public awareness of kidney health. However, it is in desperate need of more funding.

Even though the rate of kidney failure amongst the general population is rising at a rate of more than five per cent every year, Kidney Research UK is currently only able to fund one in five of all prospective research projects – research projects which could lead to enhanced treatments and a potential cure for kidney disease.

The only way to bring about an end to the suffering caused by kidney disease is to find a cure. And only with your help can Kidney Research UK continue funding vital research to this end. Please support Kidney Research UK.
