World Kidney Day

Thursday 11 March 2021

It’s the topic that’s too BIG to ignore. For World Kidney Day 2020, we want more people than ever in the UK to know just how important kidneys are and what happens when they go wrong.

World Kidney Day is an annual campaign to help raise awareness of kidneys and educate people on what they do and how to improve your kidney health. We want to make this year’s event, on Thursday 11 March, bigger and better than ever!

We’d love you to get involved and help us get kidneys on everyone’s radar. If you’d like to host an event, head here to download useful campaign materials or request a support pack. Or you can support us on your social media channels with our BIG yellow kidney.

The Kidney Charities Together Group co-ordinates the World Kidney Day activity in the UK. The Group consists of the British Renal Society, Kidney Care UK, Kidney Research UK, the National Kidney Federation, the Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Charity and the Renal Association.


The 2020 World Kidney Day campaign in the UK is supported by the following companies. Neither has had any input into the World Kidney Day campaign messaging.
