What our members say

The website is one of THE most helpful things, even before being officially diagnosed, I was suspected to have Ulcerative Colitis so I just devoured everything Crohn's & Colitis UK had available online and it made me feel less scared. I am now a member and I feel welcomed and part of something massive - I am definitely not alone!

Daisy, diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in 2017

My Crohn's got the better of me whilst still having circa 20 minutes left on my bus journey. Rather than risk an accident I decided to get off the bus early and try and use the Tesco Express Toilets. They had no customer toilet, but on asking and production of the Can't Wait Card I was immediately (and politely) shown to the staff toilets, no qualms. Thank you, thank you, thank you!


I have been a member for more than 30 years; the help, support and all the info received is worth every penny. There are no other organisations for Inflammatory Bowel Disease that offer such a brilliant service for such a low cost.
