So each year more and more people are being diagnosed with coeliac disease but not much is being done to help with the cost of living with it. Whilst there are some availability in supermarkets there isnt a huge range for them to choose from, to top that off the prices are considerably high compared to ever day food. 

Some people believe it's not a big deal, it's just a change of diet but if u compare the price of a normal Pack of biscuits, like a supermarkets own brand you can look to pay as little as 50p. Now wheat and gluten free biscuits for a normal pack would cost at least £1.50 and you will only get 8 in each pack. Of course prices are different everywhere you go, but for a family on a low income who has a family member with coeliac disease it's a constant battle to afford food for them all to live on until their next payday.

Whilst people with other life long health problems get free help but also recieve benefits for their problems nothing is being done to help those like myself with coeliac disease. So this is a petition to try and find some sort of help, funding or even food vouchers to help people especially low income people live with a condition they cant change in order to live a healthy life.
