Our Research Impact


We want everyone living with Crohn's or Colitis to have the very best care, support and treatment available. Through funding research, we aim to improve the lives of people living with Crohn's or Colitis. Find out more about the impact of the research we fund.


Since 1979, we've been driving world class research, awarding over £13 million in grants to date. As part of our grant management, we require all of our grant holders to report the outputs of their research every year on a platform called Researchfish

In 2023, we analysed the data collected from Researchfish and produced the below report. You can also download the report as a pdf
