The Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) Charity is the only UK charity solely dedicated to improving the lives of children, adults, families, and carers affected by polycystic kidney disease (PKD).

The Charity was formed in 2000 by a PKD patient and a genetics consultant. About 70,000 adults and children in the UK may have Polycystic Kidney Disease or PKD - life-threatening inherited conditions that can cause renal (kidney) failure and affect other organs in the body. PKD Charity gives practical and emotional support and advice to patients and their families from the moment theyre diagnosed, through treatment and beyond - on the phone, online and face-to-face. We also fund innovative research dedicated to improving understanding of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) which will lead to the development of new treatments to slow or prevent PKD progression, reduce pain, better manage other symptoms and improve quality of life.
