Our aims and objectives are:

• To provide PBC sufferers with accurate, up-to-date information on PBC, its implications, and treatment, in the form of our publications, including our compendium ‘Living with PBC’, our quarterly magazine ‘The Bear Facts’, our website and our recently released app

• To provide support to all affected by PBC – including patients, their carers, concerned relatives and friends – in the form of a helpline, a regular publication, regional meetings within PBC sufferers’ local community, and a regional volunteer network throughout the UK

• To educate medical practitioners about PBC, and to raise awareness of the services we provide, by distributing detailed information on PBC at medical events throughout the country, and by conducting extensive outreach work

• To support research into PBC to find a cause/cure
