As well KSN is on hand to provide support to children with kidney health concerns (CKSN) or to people generally who seek assistance in this area.

KSN has a small number of paid staff but is predominantly made up of volunteers who are part of the transport, support group or Op shop aspects of our organisation.

While we are seeking a member with committee experience, we would also highly value a new member whose personal circumstances are impacted by renal health concerns.
