Become a kidney storyteller

Do you want to help us in our mission of waking the world up to the reality of kidney disease? Personal stories can make all the difference to our drive to shout loud about how devastating kidney disease can be, and why our work is so essential.

Your stories help bring our materials, website and social media channels to life, and can help us cut through the competition for space in mainstream media.

Want to share your story with us?

We’d love to be able to contact you and tell your story, if the right opportunity arises. This may include sharing the health information you choose to disclose, in print, audio recordings, photographs and videos, in our charity magazine, on social media, our website, in email marketing and other direct marketing materials, such as displays on pop-up banners and in our shops. To produce our materials, we need to share data with trusted suppliers, such as design and printing agencies.

We may also think it is beneficial to share your story with the media (newspapers, radio, TV etc.) and sometimes the media ask us for permission to talk to supporters.

We need your consent to hold your information and carry out any work using it. If other people also feature in your story/materials we request that you gain their consent also.
