About us

A voluntary support group for those in Leeds and surrounding areas who have been diagnosed with coeliac disease. We have over 800 members and the group is run by a committee of volunteers who have coeliac disease themselves or have diagnosed family members.

The purpose of our group is to provide support for anyone seeking or who has been given a diagnosis of coeliac disease. In line with recent changes to Coeliac UK policy those with gluten intolerance are also welcome to join and benefit from our services.

We host food events, cookery demonstrations, coffee mornings/afternoons and provide support for those who are newly diagnosed. There are social events including but not limited to group meals out, including special times of the year such as Christmas.

We provide information from manufacturers of gluten free products and information of where to eat out safely, specific children's events, regular newsletters and much more.

We are affiliated to Coeliac UK but are independent of their membership. We ask for a voluntary contribution of £3 a year to assist with costs of running our group, such as distributing our newsletter and room hire costs to host events.

If you'd like to see what we've been up, have a look at pictures from our latest social events on our Flikr site.
