We understand that being diagnosed with coeliac disease can be daunting at first. With a wealth of information to take in, learning how to read food labels and making adjustments to your diet, you may feel overwhelmed in the early stages after diagnosis.
But remember, we’re here to help you with every step on your journey from diagnosis to managing your gluten-free diet. And you’re not alone. You’re part of a community of people going through the same thing as you.
Our social media pages are great ways for you to get in touch with us and find others with coeliac disease. Whether you’re looking for answers or advice, or simply want to tell others about your experiences, we have active voices on both Facebook and Twitter who will welcome you to the online community and offer you support and advice too.
Our scheme links you up with other Members who have had similar experiences to you to help you through any challenging times you're experiencing. Find out more.
