Looking ahead.

Our objectives for 2022/23

This year we will build on existing partnerships and create new ones across the kidney community and beyond. We will maximise all opportunities to increase the pace and impact of positive change on kidney health. We will focus our increased investment in research, awareness raising and sustainable income generation

Accelerate discovery

  • Increase our research spend across all areas including new competitions. Spend £9.6m on charitable activities.
  • Drive innovation and collaboration in our priority research areas: transforming treatments, multiple health conditions and health inequalities.
  • Develop the plan to fulfil the potential of the NURTuRE biobank. Add to this resource by supporting further development e.g. new AKI biobank.

Make it count

  • Raise awareness of kidney disease and kidney research among parliamentarians. Gain greater support for research funding from government bodies and the NHS.
  • Establish a programme that will make a step change in enabling researchers to make every one of their discoveries count.
  • Launch a health economics report on the cost of kidney disease to highlight the need to accelerate improvements and bring about change.
