Supporting Kidney Patients across Sussex
SEKPA is registered with the Charities Commission as Charity 284497 and is affiliated to the National Kidney Federation (NKF). It was formed in 1980 with the sole purpose of supporting kidney patients across Sussex. It is registered as the South Eastern Kidney Patients Association, but often referred to as the Sussex Kidney Patients Association, as on this website.
It provides funding for items that help improve the wellbeing of patients that they would not otherwise have obtained and by giving assistance where needed.
Membership is free and is open to all kidney patients and their close relatives and friends.
Committee members are all volunteers who are either patients, carers or have an interest in supporting renal patients.
