CICRA has been a godsend for us on this emotional ride, and I'd like to thank you for all that you do.

We have a family support worker to provide practical and emotional support for parents, carers and young people with IBD. Please do get in touch if you would like to talk to Laura about your situation and/or if you have any ideas/experiences you wish to share with her.

A diagnosis of IBD can be a shock for children and families. We are here to help with information about the condition and support for all the family.

Our membership is free and includes easy to understand booklets and leaflets for parents, teachers and young people with IBD, ‘can’t wait’ cards for children to help explain the condition when in urgent need of toilet facilities, an epal scheme for children and young people to chat and support each other by email and the Insider newsletter twice a year.

We also have a family support worker to provide practical and emotional support for parents, carers and young people with IBD. Email fsw@cicra.org to arrange a call or to find out more.
