ICOEF UK - International Childrens Ostomy Educational Foundation

Since its inception in 2011, ICEOF has provided over 12,300 Gastronaut puppets worldwide.

ICOEF UK is a unique charity helping children throughout the UK adjust to their new way of life.

The Gastronauts were developed by Liz and Phillip Prosser, authors of "Unwanted Baggage", a resource book for all ostomates.

These individual personalised puppets are for children who have bowel, bladder or intestinal diversions. Each puppet is designed to reflect the child's own diversion with its own ostomy bag, catheter, gastrostomy tubes etc.

The Gastronauts® are personalised by the trustees and Volunteers of the

INTERNATIONAL CHILDRENS' OSTOMY EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION UK.
