The coordinating voice for Black, Asian, Mixed Race and Minority Ethnic transplant donation
National Kidney Foundation

This year the National Kidney Federation (NKF) celebrates 45 years of representing renal patients, we are unique in being the only national charity run by kidney patients for kidney patients. We also run the only UK Helpline dedicated solely to kidney patients and their families with kidney conditions, but still only have 8 full times members of staff and one part-time staff member.

Our charity has two main roles:
  •  To provide an array of national patient support services
  • And to campaign for improvements to renal provision and treatment
