Our staff and volunteers are our greatest assets and we value their commitment, passion and contribution to the kidney health cause.
At Kidney Health Australia, we are a close-knit workforce that values professionalism, collaboration and ambition in our people.
Our large kidney community comprises volunteers, staff, clinical stakeholders, consumer groups and local groups. Together, we work to provide better services, support and treatment for the kidney community.
While members of our team come from a variety of backgrounds, we all stand united to help people with kidney disease live their best possible life. We have different departments with responsibilities that span advocacy and research, community programs, consumer and primary care education, fundraising, finance and communication activities.
Our volunteers support us in a number of ways; providing office support, helping run our events, conducting fundraising activities or providing peer support to others in the community. Find out more on our Volunteers page.
As one, we help those affected by kidney disease to connect with each other. Discover online groups and social gatherings on our Support groups - Kidney Clubs page.
