Kidney Health Australia is proud to run kids and youth programs. They provide the chance to connect, have fun and grow more confident.
We want to support kids and youth to connect, have fun and grow more confident as they transition from paediatric to adult health care.
Connecting with other young people living with kidney disease can lead to lifelong friendships and offer much-valued peer support from someone who understands. Families and carers also benefit, by sharing experiences they can also feel part of a supportive environment and gain access to resources and information.
To help young people create meaningful connections with people that understand what they are going through, we have created a Facebook Group where any and all kidney questions are welcome. The Facebook group will be a safe place to connect, socialise and run events.
The group is moderated by Kidney Health Australia staff and trained volunteers who also live with kidney disease; we call them our Youth Champions.
Entry to the group is only available for young people aged between 18-25 years old who live with kidney disease. If this sounds right for you, please click this link where you can join our Kidney Youth Australia Facebook Group.
