Take action this World Kidney Day!

04 March 2024

World Kidney Day takes place on Thursday 14 March – and there’s plenty you can do to get involved.

Kidney Kit bundle

Free wellbeing kit

Do you know someone who has recently been diagnosed with kidney disease? We can give them a helping hand with their wellbeing! We are offering patients a free kidney kit packed with expert information about diet, exercise and living life to the full with kidney disease.  

If there is someone you would like to introduce to the charity who you think would benefit from this kit, please share this news so they can sign up for their Kidney Kit. 

The March March  

Why not take on our virtual step challenge in honour of World Kidney Day – and ask friends and family to sponsor your efforts. Take on The March March to walk 10,000 steps a day, for 31 days, and fundraise to support life-changing research.  


After something straightforward? Get social!

Help us spread the word about the challenges of kidney disease. You can add to the noise on social media on World Kidney Day – let’s get trending! 

Remember to use the hashtags: #WorldKidneyDay #KidneysMatter  

Kidney Charities Together group

#MyKidneyHero 2024 

This year, we want to give you a chance to say a BIG thank you to someone who has supported you on your kidney journey. In the build up to World Kidney Day on 14 March, we're asking you to nominate someone who has been there for you through it all, whether that's a friend, family member or healthcare professional. 

One of the Kidney Heroes nominated will win our #WorldKidneyDay award and be named as the 2024 #MyKidneyHero. 

To enter, head over to the World Kidney Day UK social channels. Add your story to one of the #MyKidneyHero posts and explain why you're nominating them. Tag @WorldKidneyDayUK & #MyKidneyHero. Entries will close on 11 March at midnight, and we'll be announcing the winner on World Kidney Day.
