CUPID - Who are we?

Colostomy Support Group of Dorset - a helping hand

  CUPID – sounds like a dating agency – however, so far we haven’t had any weddings! The name stands for Colostomy, Urostomy, Pouch, and Ileostomy of Dorset.

CUPID was formed to provide support to patients before, during and after stoma surgery. The Group is run by trained Volunteer Visitors who are all ex – patients so know what it is like to live with a stoma. Regular, bi – monthly meetings are held in the afternoon in the Bournemouth and Poole areas where you are welcome to come along with a friend or a partner for a cup of tea and a chat with like-minded, friendly and supportive people. There are no speakers however, on occasions, representatives from Manufacturers of Stoma goods or Home Delivery Companies attend. Everyone is welcome to these informal meetings.
