What are the consequences of not being #StomaAware

If you are not #StomaAware then it can lead to people being DISCRIMINATED against in SHOPS, PUBLIC TOILETS, AIRPORTS, SPORTS STADIUMS AND MORE.

This discrimination can lead to isolation for people who are already having to cope with long-term chronic illness. Make sure you are #StomaAware.

Can you help us frame our Stoma Aware Strategy?

We would like to hear from ostomates about how having a stoma impacts on your day-to-day life in the United Kingdom. We also want to know what you think about Colostomy UK and how well supported you feel by healthcare professionals.

It’s a short survey and should only take 5 minutes for you to complete, so please feel free to answer them as comprehensively as you like! Your responses will help us better understand what matters to you and will shape the future direction of our campaigns and support services as we shoot for our goal of a more Stoma Aware United Kingdom. You can take part here
