Crohn’s and Colitis


Crohn’s & Colitis Support Group Lancashire offers holistic and emotional support through workshops and online education. 

Our aim is to reduce isolation and inspire body confidence after bowel surgery by empowerment through our campaign IBD Beauty & The Bag.

With a focus on training and educating about Inflammatory Bowel Disease we can spread awareness of life with an invisible illness.

You are not alone.

Believe you can and you will.  

My Story

I have lived with Crohn’s disease for over 12 years and an Ostomate for 7.

I want to help support others by bringing people living with IBD together. I live in Lancashire and quickly realised there was a need for local support which is why I set up the Crohn’s & Colitis Support Group Lancashire.

 I realised during my journey that to heal was to talk to others, and this group was set up with that in mind.
