Learning more about the conditions

Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and in turn learn about the conditions and how it impacts on everyone differently.

What our volunteers are saying

Responses to our 2019 Volunteer Survey highlighting the area of 'Learning more about the conditions'

The information now is so much better than what we had previously, and I want everyone to be made aware of what is available. I now have a better understanding of people dealing with all aspects of Crohn’s and Colitis.
