Second Chance Ostomy Yorkshire was formed in 2019 and is based in Selby North Yorkshire.  Second Chance is a registered charity offering practical and emotional support for anyone who is about to have, or has had an ostomy as well as their families and carers .

Second Chance Ostomy Yorkshire was founded by Jackie who being an ostomate saw a real need for local support.

Second Chance acts as a voice for people with stomas, raising awareness of the issues that they face and engaging with organisations to bring about positive outcomes.

Second Chance would like hidden conditions to be understood and accepted by all, so that people can reach their potential.
