Working towards a long-term strategy for children & adults with IBD

About The ISCC

We aim to be a patient-centred and trusted hub of the IBD community in Ireland.

Our Mission 

To improve the quality of life and well-being of those living with and impacted by IBD, through sensitive support services, including advocacy, the provision of information, training and events.

Our Vision

United and Committed in improving the quality of care in IBD

The Irish Society for Colitis and Crohn's Disease (ISCC) is a support organisation in Ireland for people who are living with, or impacted by, Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis (collectively known as Inflammatory Bowel Disease or IBD). We are here to support people who are living with IBD, along with their parents, partners, family and friends. We work to improve the quality of life and well-being of the IBD community through sensitive support services, including advocacy, provision of information, training and events.  We aim to encourage and educate healthcare professionals in the importance and value of peer support as an adjunct to their management of IBD.  

Some of the negative impacts of living with IBD may include social exclusion, unemployment/ under-employment, disadvantage in education or the workplace, stigma, anxiety and depression - we aim to support people who experience some or all of these. 

Our 2018 - 2020 Strategic Plan reaffirms the mission and core values of the ISCC while offering an evolved, overarching goal to help guide our decision-making going forward.  Through the execution of this Strategic Plan, the ISCC will be:

Our five priorities are: Governance, Education, Support and Advocacy, Volunteers and Fundraising.
