About Our Work

WSH BME Kidney Network / About Our Work

WSH BME Kidney Network is an African-Caribbean charity, the first of its kind in the UK, providing advice, support, advocacy and kidney health education to Black kidney and transplant patients and their families. 

We understand how tough it is to manage a long-term health condition. It’s scary and can be really overwhelming without the right help. Our goal is to support people from the African-Caribbean community who have kidney disease or have had a transplant, and their families. We want to make sure that they have the resources they need to live their best lives.

We help in a number of ways:

  • Support people and help them understand how to deal with the condition.
  • Offer companionship and advocacy for medical appointments.
  • Provide a safe space where people can talk about their worries.
  • Apply for funding to help pay for support for someone’s condition
  • Offer a safe space to meet other people with similar conditions. Whatever is discussed in our SafeSpace remains confidential except in situations where we believe a life may be at risk.

01People with kidney disease and transplant long-term health conditions

At our charity, we support people from the Black community with kidney disease, transplant and long-term health conditions. We want them to engage not only with us but also with other people in a similar position. We believe that this will help them openly discuss their experiences with others and forge meaningful relationships.

02Supporting vulnerable people without prejudice

African-Caribbean kidney disease patients, especially those suffering from mental health issues, often feel overlooked in their communities. This is because most people don’t talk about illnesses like mental health and kidney disease because of the stigma attached to them. We provide a welcoming and supportive environment where patients can feel safe enough to talk about their fears and worries.
