"Young at heart, but of all ages"
Welcome to the ISCC’s Youth Group section.
The Youth Group is a section of the ISCC which arranges informal meet ups, talks, an annual Youth Day and a host of other events so that people with IBD and their families can meet others with the same conditions to discuss and get support from like minded people.
The Youth Group is made up of volunteers of different ages and who have Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, Stoma’s and J-pouches.
As mentioned the Youth Group arranges events, such as meeting up for a coffee and having a chat sharing experiences and coping skills, and just general conversation. Throughout 2012 we have held a whole range of great events, many informal meet ups, a comedy night, our annual Youth Day called Huddle in Croke Park with guest speakers from hospitals and a coping skills session. In 2012 for the first time in Ireland we also celebrated World IBD Day.
So for 2013 we have planned more coffee meet ups, Huddle, fundraising event, a cooking session, more ezines and a summer event to name a few. We are aiming to hold events in other counties alongside those held in Dublin. We have a great year ahead, so keep checking back to our website or you can find us on Facebook and Twitter.
Some of our events are for members only this will be quoted when advertising the event.
The Youth Group is open to young and old. We are always looking for new members, and anyone with a bit of spare time to get involved with event planning and the committee feel free to get in touch.
Membership to the YG is free once you are a member of the ISCC. You can join the ISCC by contacting the office for a membership form or in person at one of the events.
