Caring for someone with a stoma

If you are caring for someone with a stoma we are here to offer advice and support.

Our ‘Caring for Colostomates’ booklet provides practical advice for staff in Nursing and Residential Homes and those who care for a colostomate at home. We also have a number of volunteers who are carers who are happy to speak with you and offer support. Please call us on 0800 328 4257 for further information on ways we can support you.Caring for Colostomates


We are running a pilot training project that 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. Please contact us for further information.
