Your Local Kidney Charity Run By Patients For The Direct Benefit of Patients

About SAKA

 

 

SAKA was formed in 1976 to help kidney patients and their families cope with kidney failure and to help fund research into kidney disease. 
 
100% of all funds raised by SAKA are for the benefit of renal patients who are cared for by the Sheffield Kidney institute. We are the ONLY local kidney charity run by patients that provides grants and support direct to patients and their families
.
 

 

We help renal patients directly by providing financial support. Examples of how we can help include purchasing essential items for patients who are experiencing financial hardship, paying certain holiday treatment costs for dialysis patients and helping towards visitors’ travel costs when patients are hospitalised.

 

We contribute towards the funding of Sheffield Team members at the British and World Transplant Games

 

We support research at the Sheffield Kidney Institute (SKI)


We also represent patients’ views directly to the Renal Directorate Management Team and we support the National Kidney Federation (NKF) who provide Patient Information Leaflets and  a Free Helpline.

 

SAKA is run by a committee of Trustees (see CONTACTS page).  We are always looking for new ideas as to how we can assist kidney patients, and welcome anyone interested in getting involved with the charity. Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or if you would like further details about our work.

 

We welcome donations towards our work.
