    Our Work

    The Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association (CICRA) is dedicated to creating a wider understanding of Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, particularly as it affects children and young adults. It raises funds to support approved medical and scientific research aimed at finding more effective treatments and an eventual cure.

    In addition to research, CICRA  offers support to children, young people and their families affected by Crohn’s or Colitis by organising three meetings each year, one in London and two in different regions of the UK.     These days offer parents, children and young people an informal day of meeting others and learning more about their condition including  small ‘meet the expert’ sessions
