Kidney disease affects thousands of children and young people each year. At Kidney Health Australia, we provide information, resources and support to young people and their families to guide them through this journey.
Navigating the realities of kidney disease is a challenge for anyone. If your child is in need of dialysis or other treatment options, you can get information and support through Kidney Health Australia. We can help you and your child overcome the physical and emotional hurdles that come from living with kidney disease.
Kidney Health Australia’s children’s and youth programs create a safe space for young people to learn how to combat the challenges of kidney disease. They’re also an ideal environment for participants to make life-long connections with their peers. We also know how difficult it can be for young people to balance day-to-day life and kidney disease.
Read on to find out how to support your child to feel comfortable at school.
