Crohn's and Colitis UK offers a wide range of services for people with IBD including an Information Service over the telephone and by email, a confidential listening service called Crohn's and Colitis Support (formerly NACC-in-Contact), Personal Grants to help those on a low income who have a specific need arising from their IBD, Guidance on claiming Disability Living Allowance, information on counsellors for IBD, and a support network for children with IBD and their parents including a Parent-to-Parent telephone helpline.
We provide a wide range of information sheets and booklets for people living with IBD, their families and friends, including leaflets for employers, schools, universities and general nurses. Most of these publications are now downloadable from this website, and all are available from our Information Service. Crohn's and Colitis members are sent a free quarterly newsletter and a free information pack.
As NACC, Crohn's and Colitis UK was one of the first organisations to be certified as a quality provider of health and social care information under the Information Standard certification scheme. This standard tests whether organisations have methods and systems to ensure that the information they produce for the public is accurate, impartial, balanced, based on the evidence, accessible, and well written. It was developed to help you identify quality information you can trust. As a certified member, we are now entitled to display the Information Standard (IS) logo on our published materials.
