What we do

This charity was set up to change something – to increase the levels of research into diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas so no one suffers in silence or alone.

Since 1971 we have funded almost 300 projects and invested £14 million pounds into medical research that leads to better diagnoses and treatments for the millions of people who, like us, don’t have the luxury of taking our guts for granted.

Guts UK’s vision is of a world where digestive disorders are better understood, better treated and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need.

Our mission as Guts UK is to provide expert information, raise public awareness of digestive health and transform the landscape for research into our digestive system to help people affected by diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas.
