Member2Member Get help from those who have gone through it too

Coeliac UK's Member2Member peer support service taps into the knowledge of members who have experience of living gluten free. Many of us can remember what it felt like to get diagnosed at the beginning of that gluten free life and how difficult it seemed. And if  you're feeling like this, you're not alone. Our Member2 Member scheme is here to help you.

We link members by experiences rather than geography, through conversations over the phone or email, so members can share their stories, learn from each other, pick up tips and recommendations and potentially make a new friend. And if you need this support, we can link you up so you have someone at the end of the phone who is happy to help you through your gluten free journey.

Looking for somebody to talk to?

If you are a member of Coeliac UK and would like to speak to somebody else with the condition, or if you are supporting your child through their diagnosis and adjustment to a gluten free diet, Member2Member would be perfect for you. From the comfort of your own home you can be connected with our established and experienced members who offer a listening ear, kind word and support for as little or as long as you need it. 

To apply please complete our online form or email a completed application form to member2member@coeliac.org.uk.

 

I feel we really benefitted from being in contact as we were able to talk very specifically about the challenges around having coeliac children.  
I really enjoy being part of the M2M Scheme.
I found this programme to be so helpful. I would certainly recommend or help others who are just starting out.  
I did contact our mentor a couple of times about specific queries and she was fantastic - really helpful and supportive.
