Crohn's & Colitis UK has made the difficult decision that we cannot fund any new research in 2020, including for the Pain Collaborative.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected many charities over the past months and, sadly, Crohn’s & Colitis UK has not been exempt. The significant drop in income that we have experienced, in addition to increased demand for our services, means that we have had to review our position regarding research funding in 2020. Although we hope and plan to fund new research in 2021, it is not yet certain what form that would take.
This set-back has detracted from our long term aspirations for research, but we hope this course of action can allow Crohn’s & Colitis UK to survive this turbulent time and therefore enable us to support important life-changing research for a long time to come.
