our next family days

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.

Suitable for both families of newly diagnosed children and those that have had the condition for some time, these days offer a great opportunity to hear from IBD experts and meet others in the same situation.

In 2019, we are holding family days in Newcastle on 6 July, Belfast in Autumn and London in Winter, and in 2020, we will be in Glasgow in the Spring and Liverpool in the Summer. More dates to be confirmed.

Find out more about the meetings or reserve places by contacting Jayne by e-mail saying which location interests you: support@cicra.org

Brilliant day, better than I could have imagined.

Family days give you the opportunity to: 

  • watch presentations from specialists who treat children with IBD
  • ask questions of consultants from leading UK children’s hospitals
  • meet and chat with families in a similar situation
  • listen to inspiring young people talk about living with Crohn's and colitis
  • comfortable venues, accessible city centre location

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.
