Our community map is a means whereby you can identify other patients or carers who live nearby and reach out to them for support, friendship and companionship to bring our community together to support each other. This is especially important for people living in rural or isolated areas.
We hope this will lead to the development of small communities of patients and carers throughout the UK forming local support groups who meet regularly (and virtually, depending on the COVID-19 situation), supported by Action Kidney Cancer with information and advice, as required.
Your confidentiality will be maintained by the use of part of your postcode to flag a non-identifiable location on the map. You can contact other people anonymously in the first instance before building a relationship. Simply click on the green button at the bottom of the page to add you flag to the map. You can make contact with other people by clicking on their flag and sending a message that we will pass on to the individual.
The map also identifies the main kidney cancer hospitals in the UK, as well as Maggie’s Centres and the Action Kidney Cancer team.
