About us

We are Colostomy UK. Here if you have questions, need support or just want to talk to someone who lives with a stoma.

Your voice on the bigger issues: advocates for your rights and campaigning to raise awareness of what matters to you; running projects to empower you; building communities to support you.

Our vision

We want hidden conditions to be understood and accepted by all. Our vision is of communities in which everyone is empowered to reach their potential.

Our values and principles

We use these to guide everything that we do:

Support: We provide compassionate support tailored to the needs of the individual. Our support is open to all, irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious belief.

Empowerment: The aim of our day-to-day work, projects and campaigns, is to empower people with stomas to reach their potential.

Advocacy: We act as a voice for people with stomas, raising awareness of the issues that they face and engaging with organisations to bring about positive outcomes.

Impartiality: The advice we provide is unbiased.

Integrity: We are honest and trustworthy and aim to do the right thing.
