About Us

The Red Lion Group is a UK pouch support charity for people who have, or are considering having, an ileo-anal pouch.
 

The pouch support group was founded in 1994 by a group of patients and staff at St. Mark's Hospital in London and gained charitable status in 1997.

We publish a newsletter called Roar! two or three times a year and meet once a year at an Information Day to hear guest speakers and take part in group seminars covering topics of interest to pouch owners and prospective pouch owners.

Membership costs £10 (£5 for hardship cases, and free for under 16s) per year. Please download a PDF membership application form to print, fill in and post to us.
