About our Support Group

Crohns Colitis Taranaki is being reinstated and will be run by volunteers to provide information, support and advice to people with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), including their friends and family.

Crohns and Colitis Taranaki aims to provide support to the local community while widening the gateway of resources available to individuals.

Regular meetings will be arranged and communicated to open the door to socialising with likeminded people and arrange a place for IBD experts to be accessible.

If you are keen to be a part of the group or have any questions, need advice please feel free to call or email us.
