Welcome to the
Kent Kidney Patients Association
For Kidney Patients, their Families, Friends and Carers
Established in 1986, KKPA is a non-profit charity providing financial support, specialist advice, guidance and access to further information and resources for kidney patients in Kent.
We partner with East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust (EKHUFT) & support the renal units at Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Maidstone, Margate & Medway Hospitals.
About Our Charity
Support from those who know!
Inspired by life-changing events, the Kent Kidney Patient Association was established in 1986 in Kent. Over the years, we have become one of the most trusted and effective charitable foundations in the area, working hard to improve the lives of those in need of support. Here you can learn more about who we are and what we do.
How We Help
Thriving Not Surviving
One of the primary reasons for creating the Kent Kidney Patient Association, was to support people in Kent who had been diagnosed with a kidney problem but didn’t know who to turn to apart from their hospital team.
We are here to offer our help & support to kidney patients and their families as they navigate their very emotional and at times traumatic journey's living with chronic kidney disease.
We are a non-profit charity on a mission to support as many people as we can.
Get in touch with us if you have any questions, comments or concerns, we'd love to hear from you
One of our goals is to ensure that if you are living with a Kidney condition in Kent, having an opportunity for a welcome break is invaluable.
We have two holiday caravans at the Haven Holiday site Combe Haven, Hastings.
These are available free-of-charge to kidney patients registered with the Renal Units in:
Ashford, Canterbury, Dover, Maidstone, Margate & Medway with priority bookings being given to patients currently on dialysis.
Get in touch with us for all enquiries or to book a week or weekend stay.
One of our main causes here at the Kent Kidney Patient Association is 'The Transplant Games'.
We support 'Team Kent' to compete 'Olympic Style' against others from across the country in the sports arena. We believe it helps us live one of our values - 'One life, Go Live It!’ If you would like to find out more or get involved, please get in touch with us.
