Your donations will help raise vital funds and awareness of polycystic kidney disease on our 21st anniversary and support PKD Charity’s core aims:
- We support individual patients, their families and carers providing information about PKD at every stage of the condition. We provide reassurance and understanding, practical and emotional help through our support services including our Information Days, helpline, webinars, literature and meetups providing support in the community across the UK.
- We strive to raise greater awareness about PKD. We represent and express the needs of patients and families to commissioners, researchers and pharma's. We take every opportunity to bring PKD to the attention of the media, healthcare professionals and the public both nationally and internationally.
- And we are building a research fund to enable us to support top quality PKD research into discovering treatments and a cure for PKD. We collaborate nationally and internationally with health and social care professionals, other kidney and elated genetic charities, scientists and industry to bring the latest knowledge to those affected to promote research and integrated care.
Thank you so much, we’re so grateful for your terrific support.
