Join Us

The Kangaroo Club is a UK registered charity, run entirely by volunteers, which aims to help support anyone with an ileo-anal pouch or a Kock pouch and their families. It is also for anyone considering ieo-anal pouch surgery or Koch pouch surgery.

We would be delighted if you would join us. There is no fee.

We aim to make membership of the Kangaroo Club a way of easily exchanging information, between pouch owners but also the medical profession and drug companies.

We try to do this by the following means:

  • This Website –We aim to make it a useful and on-going source of information as well as a virtual space where members can exchange information and support each other.
  • Membership of our on-line Forum. All members are e-mailed their user name and password, enabling them to log-in to the Club Member’s Forum, join the discussions and meet and chat to other members on-line.
  • E-mail communication – we e-mail all members at the very least bi-annually, alerting them to new information on the website and keeping them informed.
  • Information Days – we aim to hold these annually at the JR Hospital
