Welcome

The Kangaroo Club is a UK registered charity, which aims to help and support anyone with an ileo-anal pouch or a Koch pouch and their families. It is also for anyone considering ileo-anal pouch surgery or Koch pouch surgery. We hope you find this website useful and would be delighted if you would like to join us.

Information Day 2022 - 8th October 2022

The 2022 Information Day will be taking place on Saturday 8th October at Jury’s Inn, Oxford.

Following questions about it at last year's Information Day, the theme of the day will be pouch longevity and given the very positive feedback about last year's venue, we are again holding the Information Day at Jury's Inn, Godstow Road, Oxford.

For more information please click here: Information Day 2022.

Anyone with a pouch, or an interest in pouches (perhaps you are considering surgery or are a supporter of a 'pouchee'), is welcome to attend. Just e-mail info@kangarooclub.org.uk to let us know with your name and the name of anyone coming with you.

(The event is free, but if you are able to make a donation of £10 per person in your party towards costs, we would be very grateful.)
