Financial Support from Kidney Care UK

We know that life can be hard when you’re coping with a long term condition like kidney disease and it can affect your ability to work and to live life to the full.

If you’re a kidney patient struggling to make ends meet we can help you.

We provide individual and hardship grants to help pay for:

  • Domestic bills
  • Household items
  • Travel expenses
  • Higher education / training / qualifications
For more information please see:-

Holiday and respite break grants from Kidney Care UK

We offer financial grants for holidays and short breaks, should you want a well-deserved rest from the endless hospital visits and ongoing treatment.

Kidney disease can leave you feeling low, isolated and trapped at times. You may rely on benefits to get by and it’s not easy when illness stops you working and has a real impact on family life.

We give grants to individuals and families towards the cost of a basic holiday in the UK or overseas. The grant can be used to cover the total cost if it is modest or it can be used as a contribution towards the final cost.
