CICRA - Crohns In Childhood Research Association
Who we are
Registered Nos. England and Wales 278212, Scotland SC040700
Crohn’s in Childhood Research Association (CICRA) is the only national charity in the UK dedicated entirely to helping the families of children and young people with Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative colitis, collectively referred to as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
Our vision is a childhood unlimited by inflammatory bowel disease.
Our mission is to lead research into better treatments, to support children and families with relevant information and advice, to work with health professionals to improve care, and to give children a voice to increase public understanding of Crohn's and colitis.
Our ten year goals to give us as good as a cure:
- advances due to research mean children are given more personalised treatments, with limited side effects
- all children and families get the information they need, when they need it, and in the format that works for them
- all children with IBD and their families know where to turn for support and get help straight away
- the needs of children with IBD are always understood and supported, in healthcare, education and society
Several million pounds has been provided by CICRA to fund research and support families of children with IBD but the underlying cause and a cure are still to be found. We need your help to continue this really important work. Please give generously and THANK YOU.
