Crohn's & Colitis UK

Crohn’s and Colitis UK is a national charity leading the battle against Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. We are fighting to achieve a better quality of life for the 300,000* people in the UK suffering physically and emotionally from these and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Ultimately, we want to find a cure. For more than 35 years, we’ve been working with and for patients and their families, the nurses, doctors, and all those that work in healthcare that treat them, and the policymakers who can bring about change. We provide high quality information and support to enable people to manage their conditions. We believe people living with Crohn’s and Colitis should be able to live their lives to the fullest. We won’t stop fighting until we’ve won.

Did you know...

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), chronic conditions that can cause ulceration and inflammation in any part of the digestive system. At least 300,000* people in the UK have been diagnosed with IBD. This means 1 in 210 people are living with these unpredictable, life-long and potentially life-threatening conditions.

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis are chronic conditions which means they are ongoing and life-long, although you may have periods of good health (remission) as well as times when symptoms are more active (relapses or flare-ups). Main symptoms include diarrhoea (often with blood), severe abdominal pain and extreme fatigue. At present there is no cure for Crohn’s and Colitis, but drugs and sometimes surgery can give long periods of relief from symptoms.

What makes Crohn's & Colitis UK different

We fight Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis. In fact, Crohn’s and Colitis UK is the leading charity in the battle against these and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Our mission is to work with all those affected by these conditions to achieve a better quality of life, improve services, and ultimately find a cure.

We want to see a world in which people’s lives are not limited by Crohn’s and Colitis.
