The Kidneys for Life team is made up of two members of staff and our board of Trustees.

Our Trustees are all Renal physicians from Manchester Royal Infirmary, Salford Royal Hospital and the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

We are a very small charity and our main focus is to raise funds for vitally needed research into all elements of kidney disease.

We can be contacted by email – fundraiser@kidneysforlife.org or by phone 0161 276 6671
