About GUTS

What we do

As a charity our aim is to improve bowel cancer survival  rates. Working towards this goal, we raise money to to support various projects:

We fund the Colorectal Cancer Family Clinic. Based at the Royal Surrey NHS Trust, it offers advice and screening to people at a high risk of developing bowel cancer.

We fund equipment and facilities to help improve the care and treatment of bowel cancer patients at the Royal Surrey.

We provide grants for research into new ways of detecting bowel cancer and better ways of treating the disease.

GUTS works to raise awareness of bowel cancer and steps people can take to reduce their own risk of developing the disease.

We provide a unique service for the community but we need your help to both maintain this service and to spread awareness of this common cancer. As a registered charity, we rely solely on donations from you, our supporters, to continue our fight against bowel cancer. You can support GUTS in a number of ways – please visit the ‘Volunteering for GUTS’ pages to find out more about taking part in our community fundraising activities.
