Hello, my name is...


As a renal social worker, I often work alongside other members of the renal team to offer practical support or advice to those living with kidney disease. This can involve:

  • Talking through the practical or social implications of treatment decisions in order to help maximise quality of life and wellbeing.

  • Listening, informing, assessing and planning in a range of personal, emotional and practical issues e.g. finance, housing etc. 

  • Preventing problems or providing support in a crisis. 

  • Completing home visits to discuss treatment options and talk through what is best for you as an individual/family.

  • Support with benefit applications, appeals and change of circumstances.

  • Charitable grant applications - to be used for financial assistance, sheds for storage of dialysis equipment, holidays etc.

  • Support to access food banks, local authority schemes such as Blue Badges, disability grants etc. 

  • Supporting families with housing issues including re-housing requests, adaptations to enable better home care, council tax benefits etc.

  • Support with work issues such as advice on how to negotiate with employers to attend medical appointments.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you feel I can help with any of the above or if you have a question about something not mentioned above. We are here to help.
