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

The National Kidney Federation (NKF) has been representing renal patients for 40 years and is unique in being the only national charity run by Kidney Patients for Kidney Patients.
Kidney disease can affect anyone of any age, even from birth. There are currently two million people with early stage Chronic Kidney Disease in the United Kingdom, and a further 60,000 with end-stage – meaning they are either on Dialysis or have had a kidney transplant. NKF is a responsive organisation, listening to the issues and needs of kidney patients and then acting on them.
