support for families

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

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 run several email support groups, to help parents and young people connect with others in a similar situation.
