Family Network

About us

Our Family Network volunteers organise fun family friendly activity days for children and young people affected by  Crohn's Disease or Ulcerative Colitis and other forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease.

These events are held in various locations across the UK to give different families the opportunity to meet one another, share experiences and form mutually supportive friendships in their local areas. All activity days are free to attend and suitable for under 18’s with IBD (and their families).

Members with a child with IBD, under the age of 16, are automatically added to our family network mailing list once they have purchased a membership. As a family network member you’ll receive:

  • Information about Family Events and Activity reminders
  • Family Network Newsletters
  • Updates from the Local Network Group in your area

Non-members can sign up to hear about current family events by completing our register your interest form.

Family events are free to attend (excluding travel). If your family requires financial support to travel to an event please contact us at ypf@crohnsandcolitis.org.uk . We will be happy to discuss this with you in confidence.
