How We Help

Thriving Not Surviving

Group Hug


One of the primary reasons for creating the Kent Kidney Patients Association, was to support people in Kent who had been diagnosed with kidney disease but didn’t know who to turn to, apart from their hospital team.

We are here to offer our help, support & guidance 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.

Holiday Caravans

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.

Transplant Games

Welcome to the British Transplant Games.

Running for over 40 years, The Westfield Health British Transplant Games are a celebration of life.

Taking place in different host cities every Summer, the games see teams from hospitals across the UK come together to compete in a medley of sports. The 4-day event attracts around 1000 transplant athletes and more than 1700 supporters.

An inclusive Games: Transplant survivors including children as young as five can compete in more than 25 sports and indeed, many athletes also go on to compete at the World Transplant Games.

About the Games: The Games are organised on behalf of Transplant Sport whose aim is to raise awareness of the need for organ donation, encourage transplant recipients to lead active lifestyles and show appreciating for, and remember, donors and their families.

The British Transplant Games also help to increase the awareness of Anthony Nolan and their need for blood stem cells and bone marrow donation.
