Core is the only charity in the UK that funds research into the entire range of gut, liver, intestinal and bowel illnesses. We are called Core because the digestive system is at the core of our body and a good digestive system is the core of good health.


The charity was established in 1971 with the help and support of the British Society of Gastroenterologists and today it supports Clinical Research Fellows and Research Scientists at hospitals and universities throughout the UK, investigating conditions such as pancreatitis, hepatitis, ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease and digestive cancers. All research that we fund is rigorously peer-reviewed. Core is a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities.


We have a major interest in providing patients with good, accurate information about their illness.  We publish 25 patient information leaflets and 15 fact-sheets explaining the nature of various gut illnesses and their treatment. Some 200,000 are distributed annually.


  • More than £5.5 million invested in research since 2000


  • Finding cures for diseases from Crohn’s disease and IBS, to liver disease and bowel cancer.


  • Working with leading gastroenterologists across the UK


  • Funding research in the UK’s leading hospitals and research centres
