    If you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis this site is for you. It is not always easy to make other people understand just what makes you ill and not always able to do things that your friends do, so we hope that this site will be of interest to you.  Please tell your parents or carers that you have visited this site and suggest that,  if  they haven’t done so already, they look at the information for them or make contact with the CICRA office. 

    If you would like to know about your illness there is information written on this part of the sitee specially for you about hospital visits, treatments, how to cope at school and why you sometimes cannot eat properly like your friends. 

    There is a ‘young people’s forum’ where you can be in contact with others in your age group,  a penpal section and stories that young people themselves have written.
