  • Crohns and Colitis Awareness Week 2017

    “It’s not just a bowel disease.”

    Join with us in helping people understand the full impact of crohns and colitis on children and their families.

    In our recent survey, many people expressed their frustration at the lack of understanding of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Whether it was teachers who don’t acknowledge the constant fatigue and tiredness, or friends who think it just means someone has a dodgy tummy, we want to show the reality of IBD to everyone, so they understand the many effects it has on children’s bodies and minds, and the wider effects on families.

    If you would like to get involved, there are lots of ways you can help.
