Kidney Support Network (KSN) understands the value of strong communities for those who are affected by kidney disease. As a result, one of the service strategies we have is to encourage the development of support services throughout Queensland.

Our support services are informal resources that provide social support and helpful spaces for people who are impacted by Kidney Disease. The aim is to give each other moral support, useful tips, hints and practical advice and share our kidney journeys.

Support Services

To find out about the current active support groups and support service-points please check the table, or email us at [email protected].

If there is no support group currently operating in your local area, why not start one! We are available to help you in any way needed to get your new group up and running and we will provide you with ongoing advice and support. Contact 1800 358 797 to find out more!

Volunteering with KSN – we are always looking for more volunteers to help our Support Groups to help kidney patients.
