  • Support

    For nearly 40 years CICRA has been providing support by various means to children, young people and their families. CICRA is the only national charity in the UK dedicated specifically to children and young people with Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis, collectively referred to as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

    In addition to funding research, we help with reducing the effects that having IBD at a young age can have on the whole family. Education and social life can be seriously affected by the condition and sometimes by the treatments needed to keep it under control.

    To help children, young and families, CICRA provides:

    • Emotional support and understanding to young people, parents, family and friends
    • Free membership – please contact us for further details
    • Peer support – we put children and families in contact with others in similar situations
    • Leaflets for parents, children, schools etc
    • Family Information Days across the UK, with leading experts and healthcare professionals from children’s hospitals, where they can learn more about this condition in a relaxed environment, with small ‘Ask the Expert’ discussion groups and a special session for young people

    You are not alone. Contact us today and we can help you.
