Kidneys for Life

Chamber Charity of the Year

Kidneys for Life was set up in 1976 for the benefit of renal patients at Manchester Royal Infirmary, in recent years we have also started to work with Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital and outlying satellite dialysis units.


Our aims and objectives

The aims and objectives of Kidneys for Life are to:

  • provide funding for research into kidney disease, transplantation, dialysis and related diseases affecting the kidney
  • direct amenities for renal and transplant patients not usually funded
  • support the education and ongoing training of renal multi-disciplinary teams and patients
  • support conferences and workshops both in the UK and overseas
  • purchase medical equipment for the benefit of renal and transplant patients


Why is fundraising important?

Our research team is working hard at the UK’s largest renal unit to find a way to make a kidney, for life, a reality. By giving your time, your support, or your money, you ensure that our research will continue, so we can change the lives of those who need us.
