Hello and welcome to the Kent Kidney Patients Social Support Group. We are a diverse social group dedicated to anyone that is known to the Renal Services and their friends and families/carers who would like to get out and make new friends. I know myself from personal experience with my partner, who spent five years on dialysis and has had two kidney transplants, that it can be isolating and getting out and meeting new people can be a daunting experience and energy levels can vary but please come along and join us for a variety of events, safely and unpressured, in the company of like-minded people.
Our events will take place in and around Maidstone and will range from meeting for a morning coffee, afternoon tea, or a spot of lunch to going to the cinema, ten pin bowling (there are always bowling aids for the less able, so no excuses!), a good old pub quiz and live music/gigs. If anbody has any other suggestions, please send me a message and I'll see what I can do!
Membership is free as the group is kindly funded by the Kent Kidney Patients Association (kentkidneypatients.co.uk). However, some events will incur charges, such as buying your own food/drink or tickets for events.
