Every day, people are diagnosed with Crohn's or Colitis, the two main forms of inflammatory bowel disease. You could be any age, rich or poor, of any faith or none, of any ethnicity, sexuality, or gender. You could be anyone walking down any UK street. Whoever you are, a diagnosis of Crohn's or Colitis will be life changing.
Since 1979, Crohn's & Colitis UK has been here for everyone affected by Crohn's and Colitis.
We want to see improved lives today, and a world free from Crohn’s and Colitis tomorrow.
We are relentless in striving for improvement. Every day, we aim to make the greatest impact possible on the lives of people with Crohn’s and Colitis. We’re experts in our field and work hard to make a difference.
We are rooted in empathy and kindness. We’re there for everyone living with Crohn’s or Colitis and when people turn to us for information and support, we listen.
We are always looking for new ways to collaborate and develop together. We’re a community, we work together to help people support themselves, and we learn from everyone we work with.
We worked hard to offer help, advice and reassurance to everyone who needed it. As the science changed, we shared any updated information with you as quickly as possible. This was a challenge, but you – our amazing supporters – kept us going.
We know it can be difficult to live with, or support someone living with these conditions. But you’re not alone. We provide up-to-date, evidence-based information and can support you to live well with Crohn’s or Colitis.
