About us

The Family Network offers fun activities that all the family can enjoy together. There are opportunities for children with Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis (the 2 main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease - IBD), their parents and siblings to meet one another, share experiences and form mutually supportive friendships.
