• Our next IBD Family Information Day will take place in BIRMINGHAM on Saturday 14th October.

    Would you like to …..

    Listen to presentations and ask questions directly to specialists who treat children with IBD.

    Meet and chat to other families in a similar situation.

    Listen to young people talk about living with Crohn’s and Colitis.

    Comments from families who attended a recent meeting: –

    ‘Wow, an informative, interesting and supportive day. Both my daughter and I came away feeling more positive about managing this frustrating condition, an amazing charity.’

    ‘A wonderful day! Thanks to all at CICRA and your esteemed medical professional guests who provided advice and support – very much appreciated.’

    ‘Brilliant day, better than I could have imagined.’

    ‘The talks were informative but it really helped talking to other families who have been through similar experiences and sharing information on treatment, side effects, behaviour etc. My son benefitted from talking about his experiences with people his own age who understood, something he doesn’t do with his friends as they cannot empathize with him.’

    ‘My son got a chance to talk to the other young people his age. I think it was a huge relief for him to hear other experiences and to share his – I think he was reassured that he’s not alone.’

    ‘Great to meet other families in the same situation as us. Good to be kept up-to-date on IBD info.’
