  • Mission statement

    Kidney disease is a silent killer. There are three million people in the UK with it right now. One million don’t even know they have it and there is no cure. Prevalence of kidney failure continues to rise, as do factors like diabetes and obesity which put you at risk.

    We are the UK’s leading kidney research charity. We rely almost wholly on the generous donations of the UK public and we believe that everybody deserves a life free of kidney disease.

    We are pioneers in our field. For decades our developments in treatment, better information for patients and raising vital public awareness have been saving lives. As the likelihood of kidney disease striking you becomes ever greater, our work is more essential now than ever.

    We are Kidney Research UK.
