Crohn's and Colitis New Zealand Charitable Trust

CCNZ is a charitable trust which provides support to those affect by Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.


Our mission is to provide support to those affected by Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) & their families through support services, patient education, professional education & patients’ rights advocacy. CCNZ promotes public & professional awareness of IBD, its risks, treatment & mitigation. The organisation promotes, publicises & funds research into IBD in NZ in support of better therapies and, ultimately, a cure.

We continuously work to empower patients and their families, improve public awareness and help normalise the disease. We support those affected and help them cope with symptoms and improve their sense of wellbeing by facilitating opportunities to communicate with others affected by IBD and ultimately improve the quality of their lives.

More about us

Our mission is to make lives more liveable for everyone in NZ affected by IBD. We offer information channels, education and support networks. We seek to enhance their capability to live in a hope-filled environment which will contribute to their happiness.
