We provide peer support for people who have to wear a bag following surgery such as for bowel cancer, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, bladder cancer, other trauma or congenital conditions resulting in a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy. Membership is free for ostomates.
We have regular coffee mornings to compare notes, and also arrange Q&A sessions with the nurses.
We also work at national level to ensure the continuity and suitability of supplies.
Contact us on our email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have or are likely to require a bag.
We are aiming to set up local groups to meet as required:
