We're the UK's leading charity for Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
Right now, over 300,000 people in the UK are living with a lifelong disease that many people have never heard of. And the real number could be almost double that.
Because of the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding these diseases, thousands of people are suffering in silence. But they're not alone. We're here for them. And we're not going anywhere until we've beaten Crohn's and Colitis for good.
We provide high quality information, practical help and personal care that enables people to manage their conditions. We believe people living with Crohn’s and Colitis should be able to live their lives to the fullest.
We work with the UK health sector to improve diagnosis, treatment and management of IBD. We want everyone with the conditions to have access to the best specialist services.
We support life-changing research to increase knowledge of the causes and the best treatments for Crohn’s and Colitis. We want to improve lives now and lead the mission to find a cure.
We campaign vigorously – for more knowledge, better services and more support for our ongoing fight against IBD.
And we’re doing it in line with our values of being compassionate, ambitious, and stronger together.
