The Red Lion Club have kindly invited Kangaroo Club members to join their 'coffee mornings'. This a monthly series of Zoom get togethers for pouchees and potential pouchees to join to chat about pouch stuff. It's a relaxed and informal forum - more details, dates and information on how to register can be found on the Red Lion website.

Zeina Bushnaq, a postgraduate researcher at the University of Roehampton, is doing a Doctorate in Psychology and has a particular interest in the mental health support offered to pouchees and ileostomists. She is currently looking for volunteers to complete a survey, the results of which will hopefully provide insight and guidance into the future mental support for these communities. Her project has been approved by the University Research Ethics Committee. If you are interested in more information and perhaps taking the survey please click here.

If you are in need of support at any time, do join our private Facebook group - Kangaroo Club Pouch Support Group - which can also be reached from the link in the right-hand-side column, under the heading 'Resources'. Or by clicking here: Facebook Group
