Get involved

 
There are several ways that you can get involved with Colostomy UK.

Volunteer for us: Volunteers are at the heart of our charity. Volunteers answer our 24-hour helpline. They are our ambassadors at open days and hospitals. They speak to healthcare professionals about the work that we do supporting ostomates and campaigning for them. Our volunteers help administer our closed Facebook support group. They act as consultants on the literature that we write. They sit on the editorial board for Tidings. They campaign in their local area for stoma-friendly toilet facilities. They help with everyday office admin. In fact the list of volunteer roles is a long one!

If you would like to discuss volunteering opportunities, or perhaps have some skills that you think we might be able to use, then please e-mail our Volunteers Manager at volunteer@ColostomyUK.org or call 0118 939 1537.

Fundraise for us: We are a self-funding charity and get no statutory aid. This means that fundraisers are very important to us. Without their efforts, we couldn’t fund our services, projects and campaigns. Our fundraisers do everything from organising cake sales to running marathons.

If you would like to fundraise for us then please contact Giovanni our Fundraising and Development Manager. You can e-mail him Giovanni.Cinque@ColostomyUK.org or call him on 0118 939 1537. Giovanni will explain how we will support your efforts, he’s also got some great fundraising ideas too. As you’ll see, his emphasis is on the fun aspect of fundraising!
