Crohn's & Colitis UK's close community is our biggest strength and we would not be able to continue our fight against Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) without the support of those who are making a huge difference to support the charity and the wider IBD community.
We are honoured to recognise several dedicated supporters as Community Champions, due to their commitment, passion and exceptional efforts. Community Champions do incredible work across the UK, they are campaigning to raise awareness in the media, striving to resolve stigma associated with bowel conditions, raising money that funds research, support lines and much more as well as volunteering to support their local community.
