Current Projects

Our projects are run to help empower ostomates.

Active ostomates

Colostomy UK’s Active Ostomates project empowers people with a stoma to participate in physical activity. The project offers taster sessions in everything from chair yoga and archery to swimming. Undertaken in a supportive environment, these enable ostomates to build their confidence before taking up similar activities in the wider community.

Caring for a person with a stoma

Our ‘Caring for a person with a stoma’ project provides both professional carers and family members with practical advice and guidance on how to care for someone with a stoma.

The project has allows individuals, support groups, care home and agency staff and reablement teams to benefit from an intensive three-hour workshop that covers everything from stoma management, to a guide to different appliances, common concerns, support from Stoma Care Nurses, and psychological issues connected with having a stoma.

By educating care staff on the practical and emotional side of stoma care we can directly improve the quality of life of those ostomates who need regular care and support.
