Awareness Week activities


Shining a light is all about having fun and being as BRIGHT as you can be! And Coeliac UK is here with all sorts of activities and fun from 10-16 May:

  • Connect with friends and family: share gluten free recipes and experiences, as well as tips to avoid cross contamination. We’re spreading the word that gluten causes pain and illness for people with coeliac disease. Check out our tools for children and young people for more information.
  • Enjoy eating out again safely at Gluten Free accredited venues
  • Daily competitions from the gluten free brands you love
  • Tasty gluten free recipes, including a cupcake cook-along with Coeliac UK Ambassador Jane Devonshire and our own gluten free pizza party
  • Share stories about living with coeliac disease to help raise awareness of the condition and what it takes to live gluten free
  • Raise £50,000 to give children and young people like Caitlin a better, healthier future
