Join other kids and youth who 'get it'

Be part of a community of kids and youth living with kidney disease who get it - because they are in the same boat. You’ll get the chance to join in person and online events that make you feel connected and understood.

Whether you're a young person aged 0-24 years living with kidney disease or a parent or guardian of someone who is, there's support for you every step of the way. We're here to help build meaningful connections for life, understand your kidney condition and transition confidently from children's hospital to adult health care.

You are not alone.

What's on!

There's something for everyone. Connecting with other young people living with kidney disease or other parents/carers can lead to lifelong friendships and offer much-valued peer support from someone who understands. Whether you're looking to find someone your age to chat with at a social event, having fun at a camp, learning more about living well with kidney disease, becoming a Kidney Youth Champion or talking to a Kidney Buddy, we are ready to connect you and your family to activities, resources, peer support and more.

These one or two day events are free and fun! They're designed to connect local families for a day of exciting activities like bowling and adventure parks, informal information sessions, meeting other parents/carers and building confidence and resilience. The whole family is invited, so make sure to sign up siblings and parents as well.

Kidney Kar Rally

The Kidney Kar Rally is a fun, exciting event that raises funds for our Kidney Kids and Youth programs. Held every year, it involves multiple teams driving thousands of kilometres across the beautiful Australian countryside with one ambition – to change the lives of children and young people affected by kidney disease. The Rally is not a conventional race, but a test of skills.

The 2022 Kidney Kar Rally raised $500,000 - thank you to all the rallytives that participated, we can't do this without your incredible support! Head to the YouTube channel to watch rally highlights.
