By joining CCA or renewing your membership, you help build a stronger patient community that exists solely to support people living with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis and their families and carers.

Your membership will enable CCA to continue to provide more services, develop support programs and fund research for the benefit of the Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis community in Australia.


It’s great to see stories of other managing their condition through the quarterly magazine, and to get updates on emerging research. There’s so much misinformation that can be found, so to use CCA as the source of truth can avoid pitfalls of searching for answers that are not there. The material available often sifts through truths and myths. The online resource is a must, occasionally I have a question that logging on can immediately resolve.
