If your child is attending the 2019 Camp Purple Live at Living Springs in Lyttleton, Christchurch, you as parents and caregivers, are eligible to come and attend the parents seminar we are running.

This seminar, like the camp, will be fully funded so all your flights, accommodation at the camp and food will be paid for. Further details on the Parent Seminar for 2019 are still to be confirmed.

Topics at previous seminars have included, an introduction to IBD in kids, diet & nutrition in IBD, coping with chronic disease such as IBD for the child and the family and surgery.

There will also be a chance for you to meet the other parents attending and to facilitate parent-to-parent networks.

Parents who have attended our previous courses found it very informative and helpful meeting other parents with similar challenges.

If you are interested in attending, we would appreciate if you would let us know your intentions on, or before Friday 31st August by emailing Nicola Sweeney at
