About Them:

Our client is a leading charity dedicated to kidney research in the UK. Their vision is the day when everyone lives free from kidney disease.

They fund research into all aspects of kidney disease - from understanding the condition, to how they can prevent and treat it. They want to discover better, kinder treatments.

Research has given them life-saving kidney transplants, dialysis machines that filter the blood when the kidneys fail, and drugs to keep them going. But these treatments come at a cost. They can be gruelling, confining, relentless. A transplant is not a cure, they rarely last a lifetime.

Kidney disease still affects three million people in the UK. And one million of those don’t know they are at risk. That’s three million people who are someone’s parents, grandparents, children, friends.

And kidney failure is rising, as are the factors contributing to it, such as diabetes and obesity.

That’s why their work is more essential than ever.

Research is what thewy do. It is the only way to discover future preventions, treatments and cures. It is vital to keep their loved ones safe. Your support is crucial to make this happen.

They're here to be heard, to make a difference, to change the future. Kidney disease ends here.
