The Children's Bowel & Bladder Charity
Guts UK Charity
WE’RE GETTING TO GRIPS WITH GUTS!
Guts UK is the only UK charity funding research into the digestive system from top to tail; the gut, liver and pancreas.
Our guts have been underfunded, understaffed and undervalued for decades. Together, we will join forces and bring about important change in this misunderstood area of health.
Since 1971 we have funded almost 300 projects and invested nearly £16 million pounds into medical research that leads to better diagnoses and treatments for the millions of people who, like us, don’t have the luxury of taking our guts for granted.
OUR MISSION AT GUTS UK:
- Provide expert information: Information is power! When armed with information, patients can take control of their health and make informed decisions.
- Raise public awareness: Our research shows that 58% of people are embarrassed to talk about their digestive condition or symptoms. 51% of people delay seeking advice for their symptoms for over 6 months. When the Guts UK roadshow comes to town, we empower people to seek help.
- Fund life-changing & life-saving research: Guts UK is the only UK charity funding research into the digestive system from top to tail. It’s time the UK got to grips with guts!
