About the company

Coeliac UK is a charity organisation that provides support and information to people with coeliac disease in the United Kingdom. Coeliac disease is a lifelong autoimmune condition where the body reacts to gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley and rye. This reaction damages the lining of the small intestine, leading to a range of symptoms including diarrhoea, bloating, weight loss and fatigue.Coeliac UK was founded in 1968 by a group of people with coeliac disease who wanted to raise awareness of the condition and improve the availability of gluten-free food. Today, the organisation has over 60,000 members and is the largest charity of its kind in the UK.One of the main services provided by Coeliac UK is information and advice. T

he organisation has a team of dietitians who can answer questions about coeliac disease and provide guidance on how to follow a gluten-free diet. They also produce a range of resources, including a food and drink directory, recipe booklets and a magazine, which are all designed to help people with coeliac disease manage their condition.Another important aspect of Coeliac UK's work is campaigning. The organisation works to raise awareness of coeliac disease among the general public and healthcare professionals, and to improve the availability of gluten-free food in shops, restaurants and cafes. They also lobby the government and other organisations to ensure that people with coeliac disease are treated fairly and have access to the support they need.

Coeliac UK also provides support to its members through a network of local groups. These groups organise events and activities, such as gluten-free food fairs and cookery demonstrations, which allow people with coeliac disease to meet others in a similar situation and share their experiences.In addition to its core services, Coeliac UK also funds research into coeliac disease. This research aims to improve our understanding of the condition and to develop new treatments and therapies.Overall, Coeliac UK plays a vital role in supporting people with coeliac disease in the UK. Through its information and advice, campaigning, local groups and research funding, the organisation helps to improve the lives of thousands of people with this lifelong condition.
