Guts UK

The charity for the digestive system!

Our Vision

Guts UK’s vision is of a world where digestive disorders are better understood, better treated and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need.

Our Mission

Our mission as Guts UK is to provide expert information, raise public awareness of digestive health and transform the landscape for research into our digestive system to help people affected by diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas.

The Problem

Our guts have been underfunded, understaffed, and undervalued for decades. In the UK alone, millions suffer from digestive diseases and often have little or no treatment options. Guts UK exists to change that.

How we’re getting to grips with guts

Guts UK is the only UK charity funding research into the digestive system from top to tail; the gut, liver and pancreas.

Since 1971 we have funded nearly 300 projects and invested almost £16 million pounds into medical research that leads to better diagnoses and treatments for the millions of people who, like us, don’t have the luxury of taking our guts for granted.

With new knowledge, we will end the pain and suffering for the millions affected by digestive diseases. Guts UK’s research leads to earlier diagnoses, kinder treatments and ultimately, a cure.
